Doretha L. Murphy, Organist/Choir Director – Bio

doretha“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord…come into His presence with singing.”

Doretha believes that music is an integral part of our spiritual experience, whether we are participating in or listening to it.  Music is a gift: a gift to be nutured and developed.  Her husband, Jean-Pierre Baribeau, considers himself a ‘supporter of the arts’, and he says he would fetch the moon for her if he could.  With her Bachelor of Music and Honours B.A. in Communication, and her many years of performing experience as a singer and as a vocal instructor, Doretha brings a wealth of experience to her role at Westminster.
