As President of the British Columbia Conservatory of Music, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to another exciting school year. I invite you to explore the web site to learn more about our programs and events available to you as you pursue your music studies.
This is an exciting time in the history of BCCM as we approach a quarter century of developing a music conservatory that has become one of the finest available in Canada, evidenced by the calibre of our students, the quality of our faculty, and the professionalism of our staff.
The BCCM Music Festival has seen significant expansion for the past number of years and has grown from an in-house three-day event, to a community-based four-week-plus gala of activity involving teachers and students from throughout the province. The adjudicators are highly professional and knowledgeable teachers and musicians who have made themselves available to work with the participants, many of whom have displayed some of the highest level of playing in the country.
Whatever your goals and aspirations are during your time of study at BCCM, be assured that amid all the activity of lessons, recitals, theory classes, teacher concerts and-the-like, my intention, and the intention of the faculty and administration at every level, is to support all of you – the parents and students who are engaged in this work, and to enable you to do your very best. I look forward to meeting many of you in person in the coming months and to working together. My door is always open so please, feel free to contact me at any time.
