October 12th, 2018
L-r, Music Performance student Josée Champoux, St. Francis Xavier University music student Sebastian Deveau, Holland College vice president Michael O’Grady, Kevin Brunkhorst, Music Department Chair at StFX, and Elijah Rudick, a second year student in Holland College’s Music Performance program celebrated the renewal of two articulation agreements on the stage of the Florence Simmons Performance Hall during a recent Holland College and StFX workshop. StFX and Holland College renewed two articulation agreements for graduates of the Music Performance program, one of the offerings in the college’s School of Performing Arts. The agreements give Music Performance graduates two years of credit toward the Bachelor of Arts Honours Music degree or the Bachelor of Music degree at StFX.

St. Francis Xavier University and Holland College have renewed two articulation agreements this week that open up opportunity and collaboration for music students. 

The agreements provide the opportunity for graduates of Holland College’s Music Performance program, one of the offerings in the PEI college’s School of Performing Arts to enter into the third year of the StFX Bachelor of Music with Honours degree program in the Faculty of Arts or into the third year of the Bachelor of Music degree at StFX.

Admission to the StFX Bachelor of Music Honours degree is conditional on the successful completion of a performance audition. In addition, students are required to have achieved a minimum 75 per cent average and successfully completed all courses in the music performance diploma program with no music course mark below 70 per cent. 

StFX Department of Music Chair, Kevin Brunkhorst, travelled to PEI with some StFX music students for the signing of the renewal agreements, as well as to do some shows.
