   Shauna Doolan and the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Choir


The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Choir was formed in 1993, with the intention of having a staff choir perform at the official opening of the new Regional Hospital.  By the time the hospital opened in 1995, the group was well established and continues to perform to this day.

Composed of staff, retirees and volunteers from virtually every department within the hospital, the choir has been performing for 26 years. Along with founding members of the initial choir, new members are always welcome to join in the charitable work of this special group.

The choir was most fortunate in securing as their Director and Accompanist , Shauna Doolan, a well-known and highly regarded piano teacher. Shauna is a recipient of the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award for her active involvement in the musical life of Cape Breton.

Together, Mrs. Doolan and the CBRH Choir have provided the community with the best in song and entertainment, while raising much needed funds for the Cancer Society, Palliative Care, and the medical missions to Guatemala, to name but a few charities they have assisted over the years.
