Voice - Kathleen Anderson Memorial Trophy

Donated By: E.K. Anderson
First Presented: 2002
Criteria: Deserving Female Vocalist

This trophy and the accompanying award were donated by Mr. Anderson in memory of his late wife, Kathleen (Small) Anderson. Kathleen had a beautiful voice and had enjoyed participating in the Stratford Music Festival in her youth.

She was a member of talented Small family, which included Lorne C. Small, for whom a memorial trophy has been presented annually since 1943 for excellence in the strings competition. In 2002, Kathleen and her brother, Robert, and sister, Mary Louise, had established the Small Family Memorial Scholarship Trophy to be awarded to the most promising student in voice.
