New Director of Music arrives!
July 18, 2017
Donald Hunt, our new Director of Music, joined us on July 17. Originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Donald studied music at McGill University in Montreal, where he received Bachelor and Masters degrees in organ performance and composition. Upon graduation, he moved the UK to take up the organ scholarship at Truro Cathedral, and then at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. He then moved to Edinburgh, where he worked as Assistant Organist at St. Mary's Cathedral. Here at CCC, he will be planning, rehearsing, and leading the music in the liturgical life of the Cathedral. He will be involved in planning and executing the various performances, festivals, and special musical events that take place at the Cathedral. A significant part of his position involves encouraging and nurturing the relationship between the Cathedral and the broader musical and artistic community of Victoria. We are delighted to have him with us at CCC. Welcome, Donald!
