"Amadeus Choral Competition"

December 1, 2005: Chanukah song writer wins for 7th time:

Laura Silberberg, 19, of North York has won the Amadeus Choir’s Chanukah Song Writing Competition in the Youth/Child category this year for her piece Hanukkah Blessings. This is her seventh win. She took the words of the song from a traditional Hebrew prayer for the blessing of the candles on Chanukah.

Silberberg has been composing for the Amadeus Choir’s Christmas Carol and Chanukah Song Writing Competition since she was 10 years old and is now a seven-time winner. She is a composition major at the University of Toronto, where she is now in her second year of music study. She has performed other compositions in numerous venues around Toronto, as well as London, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Boston, San Diego, San Antonio and Tokyo. In September 2003, Maclean's Magazine honoured Laura as one of 50 up-and-coming young Canadians.

This year the Competition was open to composers of all ages, and there was a record number of submissions not only from Canada but also Britain, Japan and the USA.

Tickets are $40 ($35 for senior and student). For tickets and information, call the Amadeus Choir at 416-446-0188.
