The Royal Conservatory congratulates Swift Current resident Brennan Schommer, 18, and Hazlet resident Justine Sletten, 14, who won a Gold Medal for scoring the top mark in Saskatchewan on the Level 8 and Level 2 Voice examinations, respectively.

Schommer’s teacher is Marcia McLean and Sletten is taught by Marilyn Whitehead.
Regional Gold Medals are awarded each academic year (Sept. 1 to Aug. 31) to Conservatory examination candidates in Preparatory A and B and grades 1 to 10 who achieve the highest mark in their respective province or designated region.
Eligible candidates must score at least 80 per cent on their practical examinations and must have completed the co-requisite theory examinations for their respective grades and disciplines.
Gold-Medal ceremonies are held annually in cities across Canada, often in conjunction with convocation ceremonies, to recognize students’ achievements and acknowledge the contributions of their teachers.
The Royal Conservatory Certificate Program provides a recognized standard of musical achievement through an effectively sequenced course of study and individual student examinations from beginner to advanced levels.
Each year, nearly 100,000 examinations are written in communities across North America.
