Ivan C. Hardy Trophy

Ottawa Kiwanis Music Festival - OCS Open Vocal Class (Operatic Voice)

The Ottawa Choral Society has sponsored this class from the very early days, and the present trophy was made by Mr. Art Price in 1960 to replace the original trophy. Mr. Ivan C. Hardy, President of the Society, died suddenly in August 1960, and the trophy was dedicated to his memory. It was presented for the first time in 1961 at the Kiwanis Festival. Many winners of this class are enjoying illustrious singing careers, including Gerald Finley, Julie Nesrallah, and Wallis Giunta. The winners since 1961 are listed below.
