Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music worldwide. Susan Knight is Founder and Artistic Director of the Newfoundland Symphony Youth Choir and Festival 500. She is active as a guest conductor, adjudicator, lecturer, keynote speaker, and advocate, and has served in executive position within provincial and national music and educational organizations.
