Simon Hardman grew up in Montreal and Ottawa but moved to Halifax in 2002, where he sang with the Camerata Singers for seven seasons. A veteran of the Ontario and National Youth Choirs and the Canadian Chamber Choir, he began singing in church choirs at an early age. Due to his job as a Naval Warfare Officer, Simon has been leading a semi-nomadic lifestyle for the past ten years. He is happy that his current shore posting will allow for some long-overdue serious singing, and thankful to be back with Camerata.
