Thirty-one students performed selections by Canadian composers including Anne Crosby, Christine Donkin, Nancy Telfer, Linda Niamath, Pierre Gallant, Boris Berlin, and Clifford Poole. Two new pieces by Alberta composers commissioned by the Alberta Registered Music Teachers' Association (ARMTA) for their 85th Anniversary, were performed, Remembering a Fenian Song by Michalis Andronikou, and Donkey Riding, a Canadian Folk Song, by Geoffrey Bell.

At the conclusion of the recital, 43 awards totaling nearly $2000 were presented to students for the highest marks in practical and theory exams for the previous year, including the ARMTA Recognition Fund awards given to 5 students with the highest marks in both a practical and theory exam. Congratulations once again to both students and teachers!

Thanks again to our sponsors, The City of Lethbridge, The Alberta Registered Music Teachers' Association (ARMTA) and the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers' Associations (CFMTA) and a special thank you to the teacher volunteers!




ARMTA is a professional organization representing and serving approximately 400 music teachers across the province. The organization began in 1932 as a group of music teachers who were interested in enhancing the quality of life by promoting the love and knowledge of music through teaching and by providing cultural events of a high standard in the community. These became our stated goals and objectives when we became a Registered Professional Association in 1982.

The Lethbridge branch of the Alberta Registered Music Teachers' Association was formed in 1942 and is part of a Canada-wide federation of music teachers encompassing ten provinces, with over 3,200 members. To be a member of the Association, teachers must hold a degree or diploma from a recognized university or conservatory or meet the necessary qualifications set down by the registering province. This ensures a high level of training and a commitment to professionalism. The aim of our organization is to provide leadership in private music education in our community by encouraging and offering the highest calibre of music education possible and by promoting high standards of music in our community. Currently the Lethbridge branch has 27 members from Lethbridge and the surrounding area who give lessons in piano, theory, pedagogy, composition, strings, voice, woodwinds, organ, trombone, tuba, euphonium, and ear training. Our branch presents a number of student recitals each year and organizes workshops and master classes for students and teachers in the Lethbridge area.
