Congratulations to the music class for winning the CBC Music Class Challenge for High School Vocals. The prize includes $5000 in new music gear for the program and a framed gold record!! Overall in the competition there were over 15,000 music students and over 1000 submissions. One of the judges, Odario Williams, the lead singer of Grand Analog and host of CBC Music's After Dark commented, "This particular class captures the essence of the song. It sends chills down my spine. The vocal deliveries and harmonies are well executed, and the overall feel of the song is hauntingly good. I admire the use of melodica as well! Congratulations!" Listen to their interview on CBC's q.
Every fall season, CBC Music and MusiCounts — the charity of the Juno Awards — launch this contest to engage music classes across the country. The goals are threefold: first, kids to learn Canadian music in the classroom; second, to draw attention to the exceptional work of music teachers in this country; and finally, to reinforce the importance of music in a well-rounded education.
This year, Mr. Feniak and the Creative Music class have taken up the challenge and are submitting an entry in this year's contest. They recently shot a music video for their cover song and will be submitting this entry for a chance to win $5000 in new music equipment, a winning plaque, and most importantly -- great national exposure!! Enjoy the video.
