Queen's at the Junos
Queen's is represented with two Juno nominations this year. Professor of Music John Burge is nominated for Best Classical Composition of the Year for his piece Flanders Fields Reflections.
Singer-songwriter Matthew Barber (ArtSci '01) is also nominated, in the Solo Roots Traditional Album category for his album Ghost Notes. "The album was recorded at the Bathouse - the Tragically Hip's place in Bath near Kingston," Barber said. "I've felt a strong connection to Kingston ever since going to Queen's, and I think I wanted a bit of Kingston to rub off on this record."
Matthew's sister, Jill Barber (ArtSci '02) was nominated in the same category last year.
The Juno Awards will take place in Vancouver, March 28-29, 2009 and will air on CTV.
