Eleanor Daley
Director of Music

Eleanor Daley has been the Director of Music at Fairlawn Avenue United Church since 1982. During this time, she has established a thriving choral program for which much of her music has been composed, thanks to the continuing support and talent of her Junior, Intermediate, and Senior choirs.

A prolific composer, Eleanor has a remarkable gift for melody. She has over one hundred and fifty published choral compositions and is commissioned extensively throughout North America. Her compositions have been widely performed, recorded, and aired throughout North America, Great Britain, Europe, South Africa, and the Far East. See The Published Works of Eleanor Daley.

Eleanor has twice received the National Choral Award for Outstanding Choral Composition of the Year, given by the Association of Canadian Choral Conductors (ACCC).

Eleanor’s gift for working with children and youth means that the young singers of our Junior and Intermediate Choirs receive a music education second to none. Our Senior Choir performs a range of music with exceptional skill and beauty, thanks in large part to Eleanor’s inspiring leadership.
