Every group participating in Atlantic Festivals of Music receives a trophy. In partnership with Long & McQuade, the festival also recognizes outstanding performances by soloists.

Please note: Details below reflect 2024 information, and are subject to change.

Outstanding Soloist Awards

Long and McQuade trophies are awarded to students who play an outstanding solo during their performance at Atlantic Festivals of Music.

Outstanding Soloist Awards will be announced at the evening concerts. To be eligible, students must be listed on the Soloist Form supplied to the director.

Mount Allison Music Scholarships

Mount Allison Music is pleased to offer two scholarships to eligible students participating in the Atlantic Festivals of Music in 2024. Awards are $300 each, which will be deducted from the tuition to the Summer Academy of Music, taking place July 7-13 2024. The scholarship is awarded based on the recommendation of the adjudicators.

StFX Summer Study Bursary

St. Francis Xavier University offers a bursary covering 50% of the early bird price (a value of $325) for the StFX Summer Music Camp, taking place July 2-7, 2024 at the StFX campus in Antigonish, NS. The bursary is awarded based on the recommendation of the adjudicators to an outstanding musician (instrumentalist or vocalist) in a jazz or jazz-related style.

Note: The winner must complete and submit their registration form by May 8th to remain eligible for the bursary, and pay the remainder of the balance by the deadline of June 1.

Atlantic Festivals of Music awards are based solely on the recommendation of the adjudicators. Therefore awards may not necessarily be presented in all categories.
