2017 Accompanists 

Following is a list of accompanists who have indicated they are available for the Provincial Competitions in Hamilton. Competitors are, of course, able to use the services of the accompanist of their choice for the Provincial Finals Competitions, even if they are not shown on this list. This list is being provided for the use of competitors from out of town who have been recommended for Provincial Competitions and who need the services of a professional accompanist for the competitions.

Please understand that OMFA presents this list for your reference only. You must make your own arrangements directly with any accompanist regarding suitability for your instrument/voice, and on all financial matters, including any/all rehearsals and for the final performance at the Provincials. To confirm your intent, it is entirely appropriate for the accompanist to ask for a retainer up-front, once the details are settled. The accompanists listed are professional musicians who have agreed to help young OMFA competitors during the Provincial Finals competitions. It is the responsibility of the competitor to contact and contract the accompanist, to get a copy of the repertoire to him/her at the earliest date, and to make all other arrangements regarding all financial, rehearsal and performance requirements.

While we at OMFA do our best to make a list of professional collaborative musicians available to competitors, OMFA cannot take responsibility for the quality of their performances, nor for their practices, rates, availability, terms, etc. It is up to the competitor to negotiate any and all terms directly with the accompanist.

This list will be updated prior to the Provincials, as new information becomes available. Please book accompanists EARLY to finalise optimal rehearsal and performance arrangements.

If you have any questions or if you are an accompanist and wish to be added to this list, please contact us.
