Congratulations to the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra!

In case you haven't heard, our good friends the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra have just won 1st place at the Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival in Vienna, Austria - in one of the greatest concert halls in the world, the Golden Hall of the Musikverein. This amazing group of kids have done us so proud - not only as New Brunswickers, but as Canadians. They truly have never sounded better.

So proud of all of these guys! The work that has gone into to all this - from the musicians, to the parents, to Maestro Antonio Delgado, to our friends Don Matheson and Ken MacLeod and many, many others who all have worked tirelessly to help make the NBYO what it has become.

Thank you for the opportunity to be involved. We are so proud of all you've accomplished.


Although we don't have any video yet from Vienna, here's a taste of the caliber of music from a recent performance in Moncton back in April:
