We congratulate our dear friend and donor, Evelyn Greenberg, also a former teacher at the School of Music, on being awarded the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, at a ceremony at Rideau Hall on September 7, 2016.  This medal recognizes the remarkable volunteer achievements of Canadians from across the country in a wide range of fields.

Her award citation stated: “For over four decades, Evelyn Greenberg has been bringing her talent as a pianist to retirement homes, hospitals and palliative care facilities, and helping out with community events to benefit young musicians and promote classical music. Notably, she visits with and entertains the elderly residents of Hillel Lodge and the Ottawa Jewish community.”
