One of the original members of Nova Voce, Bob is recently retired from Saint Mary’s University. He also sings in Seton Cantata Choir and the Jubilate Singers in Halifax, and for five years sang in the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo choir. His involvement with organized singing began in high school where Mr. Tufford must have thought he could hold a tune and picked him to do a solo in the high school variety show. While an undergraduate at the University of Western Ontario he sang in the University Choir. Music has always been important to Bob; to this day he continues to take piano lessons. He says being a member of Nova Voce is more than singing though: it’s also about sharing laughs and accomplishments and sometimes sorrows with a bunch of great guys who all love to sing.
