Peter Mendell Award

Established in 2005, this annual award bears the name of its founder, Peter Mendell, an influential lawyer at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg and a true music lover who is an enthusiastic cellist in his spare time. He established the scholarship in association with the JMC Foundation to foster the development of musical excellence.

This year, the award includes a $ 5 000 scholarship and rewards a full-time string student (violin, viola, cello or double-bass) registered in a classical music performance program at a Québec university, or completing their 3rd, 4th or 5th cycle at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec. Two finalists will also receive $ 500 scholarships, offered by Jeunesses Musicales Canada.
