Member bio
Dr. Andrea McCrady was appointed Dominion Carillonneur of the Peace Tower Carillon in Ottawa, Canada in 2008. She began playing the carillon in 1971 at Trinity College, Hartford, CT (B.A., 1975). While in Europe on a post-graduate fellowship, she studied at the carillon schools in the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. During medical school at McGill University, Montreal, she was carillonneur at St. Joseph’s Oratory, followed by her hospital residency in Toronto, where she played at the University of Toronto and the Canadian National Exhibition. From 1990-2008, she coordinated the carillon program at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Spokane, WA, where she also practiced family medicine. In 2008, she retired from medicine upon receiving a Bachelor of Music magna cum laude from the University of Denver. She is an instructor in carillon studies at Carleton University in Ottawa. Dr. McCrady served for many years on the Board of the GCNA, and as its President from 1988-89. She has co-chaired the Ronald Barnes Memorial Grant Fund and the Heritage Music Committee, and served as secretary of the World Carillon Federation. In her spare time, Dr. McCrady explores the great Canadian outdoors by hiking, canoeing, and skiing. (Photo credit: House of Commons, Ottawa)
