Young Sudbury Singers was established in 2007 by Dr. David Buley, during his term as Associate Professor of Music Education at Laurentian University. Our current directors HEATHER CHARSLEY and COLETTE NADEAU have a deep commitment to accessible music education, and provide high calibre training to the singers. They are supported by a volunteer Board of parents and community members who bring a wealth of expertise and enthusiasm to the choir.
