Greystone Singers take second place

The U of S Greystone Singers took second place and $2000 May 2 in the university choir category of the annual CBC National Radio Competition for Amateur Choirs 2006.

In a live broadcast, the 48-voice choir competed against Memorial University of Newfoundland. The U of S program included “A Study of:  The Colours and Contrasts of Grief” written by Paul Suchan of North Battleford who is an undergraduate in music education at the U of S.  The saxophone major and pianist has written works for instrumental ensembles but this is his first foray into choral composition.

They also performed “Bobby Shaftoe”, a traditional English folk song arranged by David Willcocks.

For Greystone director Gerald Langner, just making it to the finals of what he termed a very “hot” competition “was gravy.  For us to be in that strata is just wonderful for our choir, and our University.”
