AWARDS and scholarships

Islington United Church and its music staff are delighted to present the tenth annual Don Banks Music Awards. The purpose of this award is to recognize and encourage young musicians, and was established by the late Don Banks to unite two of his passions – the love of music, and the nurture of young people. 

Don was an elementary school principal in Etobicoke, and a respected and well-loved member of Islington United Church. 

Join us for the final competition on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at the 7:00 pm concert.
