Music Director – Alison MacNeill
Alison is a graduate of the University of Guelph and holds an Associate Diploma in Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. After graduate work at the University of Western Ontario, studying with Ronald Turini, she returned to her home town of Guelph, where she maintains a busy teaching studio.

Alison has accompanied many local choirs, including the University of Guelph Choir, the Guelph Youth Singers, the Elora Festival Choir, and the Guelph Chamber Choir, appearing on their last three recordings.
