Timbre! Choir of Port Alberni, is proud to announce that Rosemary Lindsay from Qualicum Beach is the new musical director commencing September, 2016.

Rosemary is a choral conductor with 25 years conducting experience in all genres of choral music, including chamber, community and children’s choirs as well as vocal jazz.  She also has 33 years of experience teaching voice and is an award winning soloist in her own.

She is currently the principal voice teacher for the jazz degree program at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo, she conducts the Village Voices Choir of Qualicum Beach and is herself a member of Island Voices choir from Campbell River.
