The Karen Joy Minish Memorial Award for Vocal Excellence
The Karen Joy Minish
The Firebird Music Foundation is extremely excited to announce its partnership with the University of Calgary in creating The Karen Joy Minish Memorial Award for Vocal Excellence! This award will be given annually to a continuing undergraduate student in the Faculty of Arts enrolled in the Bachelor of Music program who is studying to be a vocalist. The successful candidate will have demonstrated his or her exceptional musical abilities through recital or end of term jury. Eligible students will be nominated by the Faculty of Arts. The funding for this award was provided by an exhibition of Karen’s paintings in August of 2021 at the Banff Public Library. Her artwork was completely sold out within 48 hours, which shows the lasting effect of Karen’s impact on the Bow Valley community. Her legacy of exceptional performance and community service will live on with this award.
