British Columbia

"...On the classical side, two Vancouver artists earned double nominations.

Jeffrey Ryan, formerly a composer-in-residence with the Vancouver Symphony, is vying for best classical composition as well as classical recording for his Fugitive Colours, recorded with the VSO. Meanwhile, Composer Owen Underhill's pair of nominations are for best classical composition (for his Trombone Quintet, with trombonist Jeremy Berkman) and classical recording for Still Image, an album featuring four of his works.

Edmonton composer Allan Gilliland also scored two nods: best classical album for O Music and classical composition for Kalla.

The Western Canadian Music Awards will be presented in Regina on Sept. 30."
