Peter Mendell Award

Created in 2005, the Peter Mendell Award recognizes the excellence of a young string player studying in a Quebec university or in a Quebec Conservatory of Music who is 25 years old or younger.

This annual award is named after Peter Mendell, a highly regarded lawyer at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, who is a true music lover and amateur cellist. Peter and Margie Mendell are proud to support musical excellence in partnership with the JM Canada Foundation and JM Canada.

For its 17th edition, the Peter Mendell Award will reward a full-time string student (violin, viola, cello or double bass) with a $5,000 prize. The other two finalists will receive $500 prizes, offered by JM Canada.
