The Elderberries Choir Director


Louise Jardine is continuing as Director of the Elderberries Choir for the 2021-22 season. Before moving to Washago, Louise served as choral conductor for the Etobicoke Youth Choir and music director for the Children and Youth Choirs of Kingsway-Lambton United Church. She states: "Community is very important to me. Throughout my life, I have worked in the public school system, my church and local youth choirs to build community through music. Music brings people together, lifts spirits and creates personal well-being. I strive to help each singer develop to the best of their ability to experience the joy of making beautiful music together."

On October 5, 2016 the Elderberries Choir was presented with a Community Spirit Award for Outstanding Volunteerism by the Town of Gravenhurst. See and hear their choral presentation and the presentation in the videos.
