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.
