Don MacRae retired from the role of music director in June 2015 after many years of wonderful service to the musical life at Knox…
Don has been a member of Knox since 1983. Music flows through Don and his enthusiasm and spirit are infectious. He has a wonderful bass voice and plays both the piano and guitar, and, by ear, can change keys whenever the spirit moves. A huge thank you to Don for having led us in music that inspires and is cause for celebration!
, Don had previously been a member of our choir for a number of years and when we were in need of an organist and choir director he graciously agreed to help us out. He has been involved in music his whole life singing in church choirs, barbershop quartets and choruses, and choral directing, as well as playing in various bands.
