Diane Loomer, C.M., recipient of the Order of Canada, founder and director of Chor Leoni Men's Choir, co-founder and conductor emerita of Elektra Women's Choir and founder and conductor of EnChor Chamber Choir, died in hospital in Vancouver on Monday, December 10 at the age of 72.
A Celebration of Life will be held on January 11, 2013 to remember and rejoice in Diane's remarkable sojourn here on earth.
The format will be a concert sung by her three latest choirs, Elektra, Chor Leoni and EnChor, and will include opportunities for us all to sing together. You are all invited to attend. We hope to see as many of you as possible there to shed a happy tear for her great life, hug each other and SING.
Be sure to get there early as there are no reserved seats and it will likely be quite full.
Chor Leoni will be honouring Diane, in perpetuity, by periodically commissioning major choral works in for men's choir in her name, drawing from our newly established Diane Loomer Commissioning Endowment Fund through the Vancouver Foundation. The family asks that in lieu of flowers you consider supporting this endeavour. Click here to make a donation.
