Spotlight on our Dedicated Program Volunteers! 

Program Volunteers Sue AbbottMartha Nabatian, Mary Jean (MJ) Duncan and Nancy Adams are very dedicated volunteers who, for many years, have been greeting OrKidstra children at the Bronson Centre (Centretown Hub) as they arrive for lessons and rehearsals.

Ensconced in the foyer of the Bronson Centre, surrounded by attendance sheets, name tags and snacks provided by the Ottawa Food Bank, they are always ready to answer questions with a warm smile as they make sure that the kids get to their classes.

I enjoy meeting families from such diverse backgrounds and realizing that their children have access to first rate musical learning and community involvement on various levels. It’s wonderful to see so many children thriving and achieving high standards of excellence. Their harmony extends beyond music.” – Susan Abbott, long-time OrKidstra program volunteer
