Chor Leoni Men's Choir Director, Diane Loomer, to receive Honorary Degree From University of British Columbia

This year’s recipients include individuals who have helped shape Vancouver and enhance its presence on the world stage. Environmental activist David Suzuki, along with Diane Loomer, an internationally acclaimed choral conductor, educator and composer, Jack Austin, Canada’s longest-serving senator, and Thomas Wing Fat Fung, founder and CEO of the Fairchild Group, will be recognized along with four other individuals.

"I was thrilled to find out that not only will I be receiving an honorary doctorate from my alma mater", says an excited Diane, "But also that UBC has also been honoured by being named as one of the top 50 universities in the world. Such recognition is both humbling and exhilarating."
