Teresa van den Boogaard is an Associate of the Royal Canadian College of Organists, and relishes all opportunities to promote the pipe organ. In addition to her career as a soloist, Teresa specializes in working with singers, as a coach-accompanist on piano and organ, choral director, arranger-composer, and teacher of musicianship skills. Teresa has performed as an organist with over twenty different Ottawa-area choirs, including the Cantata Singers of Ottawa, Ottawa Choral Society and Seventeen Voyces, and has held positions at St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, Notre Dame Cathedral-Basilica, First Church of Christ Scientist and Dominion-Chalmers United Church. Teresa’s teaching philosophy incorporates detailed technical rigour with creative exploration in multiple disciplines, encouraging inquisitive, well-rounded, joyful and confident musicians. Teresa is pleased to bring this vision to the music education team, as accompanist for the Cantiamo Training Choir.
