Our Director - Lynn Brown

Lynn brings to the Northumberland Hills Chapter over 35 years of barbershop quartet and chorus experience within the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS). He previously directed the BHS chapter in Peterborough and, most recently, the female Durham Shores Chorus of the Sweet Adelines which he led in his first year with them to winning 2015 Region 16 Division A and garnered the Novice Director Award. His vocational life as a Professional Engineer and Ontario Land Surveyor is now complemented by enjoying retirement in Port Hope with his wife Lois. He relishes making time to coach local choruses and quartets. His absolute love of music, his training at Directors College (BHS), and his years of music experience and technical expertise combine to inspire the Ganaraska Chordsmen Chorus with the leadership needed for musical advancement.
