The Rep - - ROUND & ABOUT -

FOR many years, gen­er­a­tions of the Webb fam­ily farmed in the Queen­stown dis­trict, but later Stu­art and Colleen and their chil­dren Steven and Amy moved into town for a few years and then left to seek pas­tures new in Canada.

They set­tled in Win­nipeg in the state of Man­i­toba and the early mu­si­cal prom­ise Steven had shown, came to fruition there.

He stud­ied at the Mar­cel A. De­sau­tels Fac­ulty of Mu­sic at the Uni­ver­sity of Man­i­toba and now works as a per­former, com­poser and au­dio en­gi­neer.

As a per­former and ac­com­pa­nist, he has ap­peared with the Uni­ver­sity of Man­i­toba Singers, Prairie Voices, Can­zona, the Win­nipeg Sym­phony Orches­tra and has been a fea­tured per­former in the Win­nipeg New Mu­sic fes­ti­val, Win­nipeg Stu­dio Theatre and the Win­nipeg Fringe Fes­ti­val.

As a com­poser, Steven has writ­ten mu­sic for a wide va­ri­ety of doc­u­men­taries, films and com­mer­cials, as well as for con­tem­po­rary dance and clas­si­cal per­for­mance. He has also as­sisted in pro­duc­ing/mix­ing many Win­nipeg bands.

He cur­rently works as a full time com­poser and per­former and works in au­dio pro­duc­tion at a record­ing stu­dio. - Rep re­porter AN EVENING of fun, laugh­ter and in­vest­ment in the fu­ture of Girls’ High School took place at an auc­tion hosted in the form of a Coun­try and West­ern evening on Satur­day evening.

The ir­re­press­ible Roy Hayes of Tarkastad served as the auc­tion­eer with the tempt­ing of­fer­ings rang­ing from wine to hunt­ing packages to art and week­ends away.

The au­di­ence was kept en­ter­tained by Hayes’ ex­u­ber­ant ban­ter and in­ter­ac­tion with the bid­ders dur­ing the auc­tion which formed part of the school’s 140th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

Af­ter the auc­tion, dur­ing which a healthy sum of money was raised for GHS and de­li­cious snacks were served, some danc­ing was en­joyed. – Rep re­porter
