Better than reality TV
Measha Brueggergosman was the first ever winner of the Montreal International Music Competition in 2002.
And on the 10th anniversary, the winner is once again a Canadian.
Bass Baritone Philippe Sly walked away with over $70,000 in prize money.
If you have ever watched an Idol-type reality TV music competition -- this competition is similar, but is the real thing!
People who have trained much of their lives in music are competing for the top prize.
It's quite a show!
Robert Rowat, the manager of the Classical Music community for the CBC music Web site and Kelly Rice, a CBC music producer, give us the scoop from the dramatic competition.
