Don is a charter member of Nova Voce and continues to enjoy immensely the experience of singing great music with this fine choir. He treasures the opportunity of singing the excellent repertoire under gifted directors with such a fine group of committed singers. The experience has been enriched by travels which have seen Nova Voce act as musical ambassadors across Nova Scotia, in other provinces, as well as internationally. Don is a retired school music teacher (as is his spouse, Vivian), having taught his entire career in the Dartmouth schools. He and Vivian have two daughters and five grandchildren, all of whom are musically inclined and involved. Don volunteers in many church activities, is an avid photographer, and has been a member of Dartmouth Community Concert Assoc. and its Board of Directors for over 40 years.
