About the Award

This is the permanent display memento, commissioned by the Ken Page Memorial Trust in 2008 for design by Rita So of Creative Art Glass Inc., Toronto. The medium is etched glass on an engraved base which commemorates the names of all previous recipients from the time the KPMT honours were first bestowed during the 2002 National Jazz Awards.

The medium is etched glass on an engraved base which commemorates the names of all previous recipients from the time the KPMT honours were first bestowed during the 2002 National Jazz Awards.

The stylized music staff in the design depicts the final four bars of “Why Did I Choose You?” from the 1965 Broadway production of “The Yearling” (music by Michael Leonard; lyrics by Herbert Martin)
“…if I had to choose again, I would still choose you…”
