THE DAVID R. MCCANN RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS STUDENT CHAIR

The St. John’s Gay Men’s Chorus proudly offers an annual seat to a student who wishes to be a welcomed and valued member of our chorus.

 

THE DAVID R. MCCANN RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS STUDENT CHAIR

 

Named in honour of David R. McCann, whose random act of kindness, coupled with the generosity of the Vancouver Men’s Chorus, inspired the formation of our Board of Directors in June 2018.  Their generous donation, which was given for no other reason than a desire to be kind, financially launched the St. John’s Gay Men’s Chorus. This chair strives to reflect that act and support a young man in finding his voice, his place and his pride in being a member of our community.  It is more than an award. It is a challenge to the recipient to display leadership and innovation, and reminds the choir that kindness begets kindness. It is also a reminder of our collective stewardship to reflect this principle in all of our activities.

2018 - 2019 RECIPIENT - KENNETH GELLATELY

Kenneth likes to think he has always had a song in his heart. With a mother who was always encouraging him to be creative, he has enjoyed singing and acting since elementary school. After spending a number of years in Spectrum Queer Choir, Kenneth was very excited to be a part of the SJGMC. Having the opportunity to share in the choir's growth over the past year has been an exhilarating experience. When he is not singing, Kenneth spends his time working as a veterinary assistant, studying at MUN School of Social Work or volunteering with the local PFLAG chapter. He is honoured to be the first to receive the chair and will do his best to uphold the spirit of kindness it symbolizes.
