Dr. Hanné Becker

Interim Director of Music
Email: music@stolaves.ca

Dr. Hanné Becker obtained her DMA (Doctor of Musical Arts) degree in Organ Performance in the studio of Prof. Kevin Komisaruk at the University of Toronto. Her doctoral thesis focused on the highly imaginative, virtuosic organ music of Matthias Weckmann (1616 – 1674), laying the groundwork for a new performer’s edition. She is currently pursuing a further research project, collaborating with researchers at the Digital and Cognitive Musicology Lab based at the EPFL in Switzerland.

Hanné is a member of both the RCCO and AGO and sits on the Toronto Center Executive as a Member-at-Large. She has an extensive international concert and liturgical background: active as soloist, accompanist, choral conductor, improviser, and singer. She especially loves communicating with her audiences and sharing the transformative power of music.
