December's Child was Dr. George Brough

Right: George Brough and Lorand Fenyves, in rehearsal for a summer concert in Banff, the year in which they both celebrated their 85th birthdays.
Loved and esteemed throughout Canada, Dr. George Brough is well-known as a pianist, harpsichordist, organist and chamber musician. George was born in Boston, Lincolnshire, the youngest of five musical children.As a teenager he had received 2 gold medals from the Associated Board (the English music exam system) for receiving the highest piano final exam marks in the UK.
George received his doctorate of Music from Oxford, England, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.He replied on a whim to an ad in an English paper from the Halifax Conservatory of Music, and came to Canada in 1945 as a music teacher, moving to Toronto in 1947.To say that the rest is history is particularly apt because he has touched and helped to shape the lives of countless Canadian musicians.
His life in music includes work as an accompanist, recording artist, coach, conductor and examiner, in association with the Canadian Opera Company, the Banff Centre, the Royal Conservatory of Music, the University of Toronto Faculty of Music; and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
James Norcop and a guest will accompany Dr. Brough at a performance of J.S.Bach's B Minor Mass, performed by the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Choir, in May, conducted by Ivars Taurins.
Dr. Brough played for Ivars Taurins' conducting classes at the University of Toronto until just last year.
"Clearly this is George Brough!"
Susan Spier will receive a recording, chosen by Dr. Brough, by a performer whose musical future he has touched and supported. "…George Brough, pianist, organist, accompanist, and friend."
Joan Colquhoun McGorman will also receive a recording chosen by Dr. Brough.
