The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir have named Jennifer Min-Young Lee as the incoming associate conductor starting Fall 2015. The job entails working with longtime Artistic Director Noel Edison as well as conducting the Choir in rehearsals and a select season concerts.

A graduate of The Eastman School of Music and The University of Western Ontario, Jennifer is an active conductor, singer and educator. For the past six years she has taught high-school choral music and wind ensemble in the York Region.

She has also participated in choral, wind and orchestral events with mentors including Joseph Flummerfelt, Simon Carrington, Hilary Apfelstadt, Mark Scatterday, Neil Varon, Timothy Reynish and Craig Kirchoff. Jennifer currently sings with the Exultate Chamber Singers and works as an apprentice conductor with Orchestra Toronto.

Jennifer’s tenure follows Nova Scotia-born conductor Caron Daley, who has held the post for the past two years.
