The late Dr. Christopher Helleiner was single-handedly responsible for improving the concert experience for every Symphony Nova Scotia audience member, at every concert that we can trace back for over 20 years. Chris-our dedicated, music loving, knowledgeable researcher and creator of our concert program notes.
We are pleased to be honouring Chris' memory during a concert and reception on December 21, 2017, Mozart's Messiah.
Chris was a generous volunteer, donor and supporter of Symphony Nova Scotia. A long time singer with Symphony Nova Scotia Chorus, pianist and orchid enthusiast, his impact on friends, colleagues and indeed the community go much further. Many knew him as a well-respected, Professor Emeritus, former Head of Department of Biochemistry at Dalhousie University. He has contributed greatly to our community and the orchestra and he is dearly missed.
We invite you to be a part of this tribute in recognizing the many aspects of this talented man that made him special to so many.
