Cape Breton Choral Director Passes Away

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of James “Jimmy” McNeil. An active member of Cape Breton’s choral community, Jimmy has conducted many of Cape Breton’s choruses including the Wings of the Spectrum, the award-winning Glace Bay Schools Chorale, Island Voices, and most recently Coro Cantabile. He was organist and choral director at St. Mary’s Anglican Church (Glace Bay) for many years, as well as St. Anne’s Catholic Church (Glace Bay), Bethel Presbyterian Church (Sydney), Knox United Church (Glace Bay), and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (Sydney Mines).
