The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Winnipeg is sad to announce the passing of our co-founder and artistic director, Glen Harrison.
The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Winnipeg is sad to announce the passing of our co-founder and artistic director, Glen Harrison, on Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 after a brief hospitalization with pneumonia.
Together with his wife Margaret, Glen founded the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Winnipeg in 1990, and directed 13 of the first 14 productions.
In addition to Gilbert and Sullivan, Glen's contribution to the arts community in Winnipeg over the past 70 years cannot be overstated. He leaves his musical mark with Rainbow Stage, Westminster United Church, Seven Oaks and Winnipeg School Division Arts programs, Great West Life Choir, Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, and many, many more.
Glen will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts are with Margaret and the rest of the Harrison family during this difficult time. A funeral will take place on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at Westminster United Church at 2:00 pm.
Donations in Glen's memory may be made to the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Winnipeg , 6-720 Kingsway Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3N 0P3
