The Florence and Stanley Osborne Scholarship in Church Music was established
in 1972 by Dr. & Mrs. Stanley L. Osborne (founding Director and ‘first lady’ of the Summer Institute of Church Music) to be awarded by an organ competition stressing both repertoire performance and the artful and inspiring leadership of congregational song. These two disciplines are given equal priority in the judging of the competition, and no prize is awarded to any candidate failing to demonstrate superior skill in both areas.
The Osborne Organ Competition is held biennially in even-numbered years; funds awarded support advanced study in organ and/or church music.
The Jury of the 26th Osborne Organ Competition in 2022 will be chaired by University of Toronto Doctoral Candidate, performer and educator Sarah Svendsen. The Osborne Competition Coordinator is Adriaan Bakker, Director of Music at All
Saints’ Anglican Church, Whitby.
