Lauda, a word which means to praise, reflects how this ensemble commends diversity amongst its youth. Lauda offers an enriching musical experience in a safe, neuro-diverse environment. With a high ratio of musical and social support, including musical therapists and choral musical specialists, this ensemble fosters acceptance and respect through reciprocal learning. Lauda is conducted by a dedicated team which includes Kellie Walsh, Cheri Carroll, Deborah Hawksley, Leanne Kearsey, Jen Adams, Dr. Jane Gosine, and Dr. Sandra Luscombe. As colourful and unique as the flowers that grow across Newfoundland and Labrador, Lauda creates an environment where the talents of choristers flourish, ensuring our culture sings!
