Isaiah Nasby of Deloraine is a 2019 recipient of the Royal Conservatory Gold Medal for the Manitoba Region for Preparatory Guitar. Gold medals are awarded each academic year to exam candidates who have obtained the highest mark for their level, discipline and region while meeting all the necessary requirements. Isaiah started playing piano two years ago and added guitar about a year ago. He says he was surprised to hear about winning the award. Asked if his musician dad inspires him, Isaiah said “yes definitely. I am glad that my dad is so good at music and can help me.” His dad is Nathan Nasby, well-known artist and composer, but I know Nathan would want this to be all about Isaiah as he along with the whole Nasby family are very proud of Isaiah’s accomplishments. Congratulations Isaiah – your community is also proud of you.
