About the Choir

Musica Viva Singers of Ottawa is a 60 voice (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) community choir now in its 14th performance season.


Scott Richardson is active in the Ottawa area as a choir director and piano accompanist.  He is very excited to join Musica Viva Singers this season as their new Music Director.
For the past five seasons, Scott has been the Music Director of Atlantic Voices: The Newfoundland and Labrador Choir of Ottawa.  He is the rehearsal pianist for both the Ottawa Choral Society and the Carleton University Choir, and has also accompanied the Canadian Centennial Choir and the Ottawa Children’s Choir.  In addition to his freelance piano work, Scott maintains a busy schedule of private teaching.  As an organist and church musician, he has held various positions in the Atlantic Provinces and in Ottawa, and is currently Music Director at Orleans United Church.
Scott grew up in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and studied music at Mount Allison University.  His graduate studies took him in a different direction, however, and he completed a Ph.D. in English literature at the University of Ottawa.
