Alumna Vicki St. Pierre heads Ontario Youth Choir in residence at Western

Vicki St. Pierre, BMus’96 (Performance-Voice), MMus’98, spent the week as conductor of the Ontario Youth Choir (OYC), Aug. 9-16, at Western. A five-year OYC alumna, her experience with the group “absolutely shaped the singer that I am, the conductor that I am, the teacher that I am.”

OYC is a hand-picked group of 39 singers, aged 16-23, from across the province for a 10-day immersive music experience.

“To be asked to do this was really exciting,” St. Pierre said. “I was honoured because I know how important it is to work with musicians like this, musicians who are on the cusp of some great things. Some are already doing great things.”
