The Addison Women's Choir Music Award was created as a way for our choir to give back to the community that has supported us over the last 36 years and to continue our legacy of the importance of music in our everyday lives. This year's recipient is Sheheryar Qureshi. He is a grade 12 graduating student from Preston High School. He has shown excellence of musical skills throughout his secondary education. He has demonstrated a strong passion for music both vocally and instrumentally. Sheheryar has shown leadership in the musical climate of his school. He is a true advocate of the musical arts. The Addison Women's Choir congratulates him on this well-deserved award.
The Addison Women’s Choir Music Award of $500.00 is awarded annually to a deserving student from any secondary school in Cambridge. Requests for applications for the award are sent out early in the new year to each school and we invite any student who qualifies to apply. The Addison Women’s Choir (formerly Addison Consort Singers) was established in 1982 by the late Duncan Addison. The choir practices on Tuesday evenings 7:30 to 9:30 pm, September to the beginning of May each year and singers are always welcome.
