Glenda started singing as a young teen, taking voice lessons, as well as a music major in high school. She joined the Victoria Gilbert & Sullivan Operatic Society at 16, and sang in live radio broadcasts and several stage shows.
When she entered the school of nursing at the Royal Jubilee Hospital a few years later, the shift work effectively curtailed her music.
Glenda retired in 2005, after marrying, raising two children, travelling, and having a varied nursing career. She resumed her music, taking voice lessons again and singing in choirs. She has been singing with Starlight Pops since its inception 7 years ago. She obtained her grade 8 RCM certificate in voice, and presently sings at the VCM with Kathryn Whitney and Kiiri Michelsen.
She found singing in the Winterreise Project very rewarding, and is looking forward to Schumann’s beautiful Dichterliebe.
