Transitions in Choral Directors

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Catherine Robertson with Chapel ChoirThe Music Department wishes to express profound gratitude to two ensemble directors for their extraordinary work with Grebel choirs: Catherine Robertson (pictured at piano), who has directed the Chapel Choir since 2015, and Gerard Yun (pictured below), director of the University Choir since 2009. Gerard is beginning a full-time position in Community Music at Wilfrid Laurier University. Catherine will continue in her role as piano studio instructor at Grebel, which she has held for 20 years.

Both CDr. Gerard Yunatherine and Gerard have mentored many students in honing their musical gifts, while also cultivating a strong bond with and between choir members in their respective ensembles. They have inspired in their choristers a passion for music and an enthusiasm for singing together, while modeling a spirit of mutual respect, support and kindness. We are grateful for the many ways that Catherine and Gerard have served the Grebel community and beyond in their roles as choral directors.

We also warmly welcome Liska Jetchick, who will direct the University Choir in the spring term, and Kate Steiner, who will work with the chapel program and assume leadership of the Chapel Choir in the fall term
