The #egréNEW2020 in Voice online: September 19 – 20, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have re-visioned the Finals of the 43rd edition of the E-Gré Competition in voice that were originally scheduled for April 2020 at Brandon University School of Music, to a virtual format. Fittingly for the competition that has always championed the new, the re- visioned 2020 E-Gré will be online September 19 – 20, 2020. All final recital performances will be available for live streaming on CBC.ca/music, on our website e-gre.ca, and social media platforms including YouTube and Facebook.

The Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition

The Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition for the performance of Canadian and contemporary music is a memorial to composer, pianist, and violinist S.C. (Sonia) Eckhardt-Gramatté, who spent the last twenty-one years of her life in Manitoba. It fulfills her lifelong dream of creating a means by which the music of contemporary composers could make its presence felt by young musicians on the threshold of their careers. The E-Gré National Music Competition has been held annually since 1976 at Brandon University.
