Royal Conservatory of Music exam results for spring and summer

The Conservatory, based in Toronto, is celebrating 125 years and students who have taken exams in 2011 will receive a gift

The Conservatory, based in Toronto, is celebrating 125 years and students who have taken exams in 2011 will receive a gift – a commemorative participation certificate, a 125th-anniversary medal and an automatic entry for special prizes sponsored by Yamaha.

The Grand Forks Examination Centre No. 723 started in 1985, celebrating 26 years, and has benefitted hundreds of exam students who were able to take their exam in Grand Forks instead of travelling to another centre.

While all theory students are able to write exams here, as the exams are mailed, we can only have a centre for practical exams if we have a minimum of 15 entries. Students were from Grand Forks, Christina Lake, Greenwood and Victoria.

Candidates for Theory were:

Basic Rudiments: First Class Honours With Distinction – Kira Gammie, Cecilie Regenberg and Ko Chantelle

Advanced Rudiments: First Class Honours With Distinction – Marla Konkin

First Class Honours – Carter Notheisz

Honours Ross Merry

Basic Harmony: Honours – Nicole Del Aguila

Grade 6 Piano: Honours – Breeanne Klassen

Grade 9 Piano: Honours – Nicole Del Aguila

Voice 6: Honours – Kira Gammie

Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (ARCT) in Piano: Honours, Josh Caron. Josh made history when he became the first secondary student in the Boundary to achieve the degree status while still in school.

In September, he was awarded a Volunteer Certificate by the City of Grand Forks for his volunteer work as piano accompanist and soloist. At the Kootenay Festival in Trail, he  qualified to play in the Honours concert.

Congratulations to all students and teachers: Tracey Garvin, Barb Peters, Joan Thompson, Erna Gobbett and Bruce Grattan.
