Karen Hunter has earned a gold medal from The Royal Conservatory for scoring the top mark in the B.C. Level Five Voice Examination.

Hunter, an adult student, received the award during the Royal Conservatory’s annual Convocation and Gold Medal Ceremony, Nov. 1 in Vancouver.

A Royal Conservatory media release shared the praise with Hunter’s teacher Christine McMahon of Nanaimo.

To receive a gold medal candidates must score at least 80 per cent on their practical examination, the release notes.

“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 release says.

“The Royal Conservatory of Music is one of the largest and most respected music and arts education institutions in the world.”

It’s motto is: “The finest instrument is the mind.”
