The SMCQ is pleased to award the Critique Competition prize in the university graduates category to Mehrshid Afrakhteh. His submission was on the Nubi concert. The competition, which took place within the framework of the Montreal/New Music festival 2015 had ten entries. The jury, consisting of Danick Trottier (musicologist), Réjean Beaucage (critic) and Maxime McKinley (composer) studied the submissions anonymously in keeping to the following criteria: context within the event, presentation of the work, description of the concert and personal impressions. The prize will be awarded on May 20th, prior to the Une soiré à l’asile concert.

Congratulations to Mehrshid and bravo to all the participants.
