Director of the Cantabile Truro Youth Singers
Ann Legere has been the Artistic Director of the Cantabile Truro Youth Singers since the inception of the choir. After her studies in voice and piano, Ann has been directing and accompanying choirs and soloists. She directs Immaculate Conception Church choir and has been on the Board of the Truro Music Festival since coming to Truro.
Upon moving to Truro 22 years ago from Bathurst, New Brunswick, she formed the Cantabile Truro Youth Singers, with her daughter, Lorraine Brocklehurst who has been accompanist since its inception. The choir is made up of students in Grades 4 and up, and performs regularly in concerts throughout the year with Cantabile Choir (Cantabile Singers (Adult), and Cantabile Boys Choir. The choir has been so fortunate in having the addition of Marie Braedley as Assistant Director.
They are regularly invited guests in concerts with “Creative Voices” (ladies choir under Jackie Chambers). They participate yearly in the Truro Music Festival, and TYS girls love singing the Anthem at the Junior Bearcat’s hockey games at the RECC during their season, as well as for other groups in our community who request the singing of O Canada. Her husband, Max, (a retired high school teacher of 35 years at Bathurst High School) is a wonderful support in many aspects of the choir.
