Wendy Nixon Stothert
Wendy Nixon Stothert, B.Ed, M.EdL, was hooked on music from an early age. She taught K-12 Music in the Comox Valley school district for 15 years and has now shifted to self-employment as a choral director, workshop provider, performer, arranger, and concert planner. She currently directs 6 adult community choirs that sing a wide variety of repertoire, including the 3 Just in Time contemporary ensembles, the Canadian Military Wives Choir Comox, the Berwick Choir, and co-leads the CV Pop-Up Choir. As a performer, Wendy sings as a soloist and with the vocal jazz quartet, Swing Set. She serves on the Comox Valley Community Arts Council and the BC Choral Federation. Wendy runs Choral Valley Retreats, Festivals, and Workshops.
Making music with the Just in Time Choirs and Sean Mooney is a dream come true for Wendy. She loves the vibrant interactions with the singers, the community feel, and the thrill of hearing harmonies come together. She firmly believes that everyone has a voice and that singing should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. By providing solo and small group opportunities in both rehearsal and performance settings, Wendy hopes to facilitate singers on their path to performing with excellence and confidence.
