I am the administrator of the Kiwanis Fraser Valley Music Festival Society. During our 2003 festival, I had the pleasure of working with Doreen Laing, who adjudicated our Junior & Intermediate Piano classes as well as Piano Concerto and Duet classes for all ages. I would highly recommend her without hesitation as an adjudicator.
Due to a shortage of volunteers, I was her secretary on many occasions. Her written adjudications were thorough and detailed and her verbal comments in her classes were always constructive. She is particularly gifted with elementary school aged children and was always able to squeeze in a music history lesson and still stay on schedule.
