Welcome to the YSPF

Joan Milkson, President, YSPF © Fred Cattroll

Welcome to YSPF’s 2020-2021 season, our 19th. And to all, our best wishes for 2021!

We hope that you have managed to stay healthy through this pandemic year.

Following our YSPF video of last June, we made a second video. It was recorded on 23 January 2021, which would have been the evening of our first concert of the current season. You can find it here (35 minutes) and the program here.

And, on 27 February 2021, which would have been the day of our second concert of the present season, we made a third video. You can find it here (55 minutes) and the program here.

The links can also be found in items in the News section further down on this page.

Our NCR young talents have been practising very hard. Some have been applying to universities. Others are preparing for RCM examinations and participation in the Kiwanis Music Festival, both of which are being done virtually.

This has all been a new and somewhat challenging experience for the students. Recording is a repetitive exercise; you do it again and again until you feel it is really the best you can do.

The YSPF thanks you for taking the time to watch the videos and hopes that you will continue to encourage and support the aspirations of our young talents.

Joan Milkson
President
