Family Music

We’re thrilled to present a large group of performers in the Family Music PDF category taking place Fri., April 5, 2013 at 10:15 AM in the Salvation Army Church. Everything from violinists to vocalists to pianists and percussionists are making music together with their siblings or parents or both. Enjoy the fun with jazzy duets, movie music, a concerto and more.

Lyle Moore Scholarship


Since 2006 the Lyle Moore Scholarship has been awarded to advanced level students pursuing a career in music. Over the years the scholarship ($1,000) has been paid to universities across Canada, offering talented young people from this community the opportunity to develop their potential as performing artists.

Lyle Moore was an active Rotarian who was deeply involved in our music festival, primarily as the volunteer coordinator. He loved music, and to commemorate his life the Rotary Club of St. Albert is honored to present this scholarship. Don’t miss the Lyle Moore Scholarship Class PDF on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 6:30 PM at the Salvation Army Church. Meet the Lyle Moore Scholarship candidates for 2013.



We hope that everyone is inspired by our gifted Adjudicators and is looking forward to sharing their talents with other performing artists and the whole community.
