“It took me a bit of reflection before I could figure out why the music that you and Oleg provided last evening was so important to me.
“I find that most good music is very entertaining in the moment. However, time with the two of you was a welcome respite from the cares of the world, that I find increasingly worrisome.
“For about an hour, I was able to completely forget about global warming, floods and the circus at Queen’s Park. That unrepresentative government is unravelling the social safety net that has laboriously been put in place over the last 100+ years and it is hacking away at environmental protections that help to mitigate the effects of climate change.
“I find that all of this is very heavy stuff and it was simply laid aside for a while and for that I am very grateful.
“God bless you both in your ministry of music”, TG

I’m a vocal soloist. Have a listen to my music, read a few of my reviews, find a publicity picture or locate my contact information. I love to sing; it’s my calling, my passion: Concert soloist, song-leader, lead soprano in your choir, memorial services. As well as sacred music I love music from the Great American Songbook era, and enjoy new vocal compositions too.
In 2019 I earned the designation of Licensed Lay Worship Leader within Shining Waters Region of The United Church of Canada, and enjoy leading worship as occasional pulpit supply. I have become well acquainted in preparing virtual services (both pre-recorded or live Zoom) as well as in-person services. I’ve had the honour of leading worship from a wide range of geographic locations within Ontario – both large urban and smaller rural – and enjoy them all. See Event Listings for specific locations.
