The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony mourns the loss of former Board Chair Catherine Copp. Catherine had a deep love of music, the arts and literature. She spent five years as Chair of the KWS Board of Directors and provided critical leadership during the transition to a new Executive Director, recognized through being presented with the Mabel Krug Award in 2017. Catherine and her husband David recently established an endowment fund to recognize and perpetuate Catherine’s long-time passion for the Symphony.
