The Victoria Branch of the BC Registered Music Teachers has awarded the 2017 Hilda King Theory Award for Grade 9 Harmony to VCM Theory student Vicka Pluzhnikova for receiving the highest mark on her Royal Conservatory of Music Grade 9 Harmony examination.
Vicka wrote the Grade 9 Harmony examination during the May session and went on to write the Grade 10 Harmony examination after attending the Summer Theory Academy in July. Vicka deserves a special note of congratulations for receiving First Class Honours on both examinations!
Vicka is currently in grade 11 at Mount Douglas Secondary School and has a strong interest in sciences and math. Vicka enjoys ballet and piano and is working towards her ARCT.
Vicka studies piano with Ya Lin Hung and Harmony with Crystal Wiksyk at the VCM.
