We are grieved to share the news that our friend and colleague Scott Weidler died peacefully January 23, 2021. He was a brilliant Cantor and liturgical musician, a regular leader at our workshops, a formative presence in Music That Makes Community and a member of the Liturgy Canada Executive. We send prayers of comfort to his husband Zia, his family, and to all who mourn his loss.
