We count ourselves very lucky to have two very talented leaders in the form of Charles White our conductor and Deb Thompson our accompanist.
One Voice Singers regular accompanist is Debra Thompson. Debra holds a Music and Math degree from the University of Toronto. She recently retired from 25 years of teaching Music and Math at Uxbridge Secondary School. Deb is a busy accompanist who also enjoys curling, golf and gardening.
One Voice Singers conductor Charles White was an educator with the Durham District School Board for 35 years. During that time he was Head of Music/Fine Arts at Port Perry High School where he conducted choirs and bands. He also spent three years as Music Consultant for the Durham Board.
Charles has served terms as Executive Director of the Ontario Vocal Festival, Chairman of the Choral Division of Musicfest Canada, Director of Durham Music Camp and Chairman of the Vision Committee for the Sunderland Lions Club Music Festival. In his spare time, Charles also works as a choral clinician and festival adjudicator. He is very pleased to have the opportunity to conduct One Voice.
