Two singers and an in­stru­men­tal­ist from the Con­cep­tion Bay North area claimed gold medals in Royal Con­ser­va­tory of Mu­sic ex­am­i­na­tions.

Cheyenne Ed­munds, Sean Quin­lan and Re­becca Sel­lars re­ceived their medals dur­ing an awards cer­e­mony in Hal­i­fax Oct. 29. They all earned the top marks in At­lantic Canada for their re­spec­tive dis­ci­pline.

Cheyenne, an 11-year-old from North River, claimed her medal for Level 2 Voice. Her teacher is Holly Lock­yer-Lee. Ten-year-old Sean from Bay Roberts won gold in Prepara­tory gui­tar and is taught by Aubrey Nof­tall. Re­becca, a 12-year-old from Car­bon­ear, earned her medal in Level 4 Voice. Robert Col­bourne is her teacher.

Stu­dents must score at least 80 per cent in their prac­ti­cal exam and com­plete co-req­ui­site the­ory ex­ams for their grade and dis­ci­pline to be el­i­gi­ble for a medal. Nearly 100,000 ex­ams are writ­ten for the con­ser­va­tory an­nu­ally across North America.
