New director chosen! A big thank you to the search committee!

On Wednesday, February 5, 2020, the director search committee, after almost a year’s work, was able to announce the hiring of Sosun Suh as our new choir director. Sosun signed the contract just before choir practice and Robert welcomed her to our practice time. Denise introduced her and shared some of her educational background and experience.


The following comes from Sosun's cover letter:


I have conducted since I was 11 years old at schools, communities and churches. I also have 14 years of teaching experience in the public, private schools in Toronto, Winnipeg and Seoul, South Korea as a music teacher. I completed B.A. Music and a Master of Music Education at Sungshin University in Seoul, before deciding to immigrate to Canada. Now I have a certification in Early Childhood Music Education (ECME) Certificated at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. Also I received a Master of Religious Education at University of Toronto.


I was a musical director at Canadian Military Wives Choir Petawawa for 3 years and a musical director of two children's choirs (60 voices and 20 voices) for 10 years. I was a member of Gangwon Province Korean music orchestra and Seoul Korean music orchestra that belong to Korea government for 8 years.


Recently, I moved to Ottawa because of my husband’s work. 
Sosun will join us again for our rehearsal on Sunday so that those if you who weren’t at Wednesday’s rehearsal will get to meet her and welcome her to our chorus.


Welcome Sosun, we look forward to experiencing where you will guide the chorus!
