The Royal Conservatory congratulates Surrey resident Hanson Kang, who won a 2010 Silver Medal for scoring the top mark in the province on the Grade 10 Clarinet examination.

He received the prize at a public medal ceremony at Mount Seymour United Church in North Vancouver.

His teacher is Ken Lee.

Silver Medals are awarded each academic year to Conservatory examination candidates in Preparatory A and B and Grades 1 to 10 who achieve the highest standard of excellence in their respective province.

Eligible candidates must score at least 80 per cent on their practical examination and must have completed the co-requisite theory examinations for their respective grade and discipline. Silver Medal ceremonies are held annually in cities across Canada to recognize students’ achievements and acknowledge the contributions of their teachers.

The Royal Conservatory conducts 100,000 examinations annually in over 300 communities around the world.

Nearly 2,000 take place in Surrey.
