STEAMBOAT MOUNTAIN MUSIC BURSARY RENAMED IN HONOUR OF CAROL WILKIE
At the Steamboat Music Society AGM, on March 7th, 2022, members passed a motion to change the name
of the Steamboat Mountain Music Society Bursary to the Carol Wilkie Steamboat Mountain Music
Bursary, in memory of Edgewater’s beloved music teacher who passed away last August.
Carol was a true local treasure who helped nurture the love of music in dozens of aspiring musicians. After her death, Carol’s family requested that memorial donations be sent to Steamboat Society Bursary Fund. The Society is grateful for the trust the Wilkie Family has shown in our program. This new name will
honour Carol’s legacy and the importance of music education.

Invermere piano teacher Tanya DuBois is the other bursary recipient for 2021. Tanya is using her
award to help pay the fees to complete her upper-level conservatory certifications, a combination of

advanced students. Both of these 2021 awards are investments in the future of music in the Columbia
