Brad is a compelling conductor, composer and adjudicator from Burlington, Ontario.
He is currently the assistant conductor for the Bach Chamber Youth Choir,
as well as music director of Wavestage Theatre Company in north Toronto,
and assistant music director for Christ’s Church Cathedral in Hamilton.

Brad graduated in 2016 with a master’s degree in choral conducting from the
University of Toronto, where he was the assistant conductor of the Men’s Chorus.
In 2014, he earned his bachelor’s degree in music theory and composition from
Western University and writes for choral ensembles across Canada today.
In March of 2016, Brad was invited to adjudicate the Ontario Vocal Festival,
and has since been invited to serve as a clinician for various vocal festivals
and choral retreats across Canada. He has had the privilege to conduct in
masterclass for world-renowned ensembles such as the National Estonian Male Choir
and the Gloucester Cathedral Choir, and this spring he continues his assistant
conductorship for the Ellison National Honour Choir, lasting since 2015.

Beyond his love for choral music, Brad is the lead singer and keyboardist for
the critically-acclaimed band “Family of Things”. He is thrilled to be working
alongside Linda Beaupre, Eleanor Daley and BCYC once again.
