Halifax Music Co-op


“We are here to knock down the barriers between music, education and people.”

In Halifax Music Co-op from PechaKucha Night Halifax Vol. 20, John Bogardus shares what the Halifax Music Co-op is. Bogardus is a curious and passionate conductor, and has been playing in and leading ensembles the majority of his life. In 2010, John started the program that would become the Halifax Music Co-op. Since that time, he has devoted his life to nurturing the organization and its membership as both Executive Director and Music Director of the HMC. His passion for music and musical education has grown the Halifax Music Co-op from humble beginnings to an organization of half a dozen ensembles and over 200 members.
