Jenn Callum: Co-Founder, Past President 2014-2019

After going to school for Business with a major in Marketing during the ‘80s, Jenn turned to contracting and was a self-employed entrepreneur for over 30 years. Involved with music from a young age, she took lessons and played flute and organ/piano non-professionally, and was a singer for over 30 years. She sang in two Celtic ensembles, one of which toured Southern Ontario and the United States annually.

From 2006 she was heavily involved with the Music and Arts culture of Milton, Ontario, first with the Milton Choristers – as a singer, board member, then as a Concert Manager – and then as the Logistics Coordinator for the Annual Milton Film Festival from it’s start in 2013.

At the end of May 2014, she and Music Director Sabatino Vacca met and agreed to form the Milton Philharmonic Orchestra, and together they recruited the founding board of directors and organized auditions of its founding orchestra members. She was a passionate supporter of the arts and arts education in Milton.

Sadly, Jenn passed away in 2022 following a battle with cancer. The MPO will be forever thankful for her enthusiasm and support.
