Kudos

Kurt Ward-Theiss baritone (4th year BMus student) and Jonathan Lopez clarinet (first year BMus student) received bursaries from the Vancouver Welsh Men's Choir. Kurt and Jonathan recently performed in the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir Celtic concerts for St. Patrick's Day weekend in Maple Ridge and at Christ Church Cathedral. The bursaries are awarded in order to advance the ensemble's mission of collaborating with and supporting youth choirs and soloists in the community.

Nicole Linaksita (BMus/BSc ‘16 dual degree) was named as a finalist in the 2018 Shean Piano Competition. The finals will take place May 17–19, 2018 in Muttart Hall, Alberta College in Edmonton. Read more
