About One Five O

One Five O, named after Psalm 150, began when a few flutists and singers from Saint John High School were invited to assist me in the music ministry at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church. Encouraged by the warm reception, the students gathered their musical friends, who brought with them their own special talents. One Five O flourished! The enthusiasm of the students has inspired a multitude of musical arrangements written in their honour.

With the love and support of Fr. Joe Cochrane, One Five O continues to enrich the liturgies at Holy Trinity Church. In 2001/2002, One Five O was invited to lead the weekly ecumenical youth services at the historical Trinity Anglican Church and has since performed in numerous charity concerts, SJHS events, and the NB Music Festival establishing this group as an inspirational multi denominational youth ensemble of modern Christian music.

To the alumni and current members of One Five O, thank you! Over the past decade, your generous spirit and tireless dedication of time and talents have brought such joy to so many. Creating music with you has always been a privilege and will remain one of the greatest rewards of my teaching career.
