From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Clayton Hare (July 13, 1909 – December 11, 2001) was a Canadian music teacher,[1] conductor, and violinist. He was the third principal conductor of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra and taught at a number of universities including Mount Allison University, the University of Portland, and Mount Royal College.

Early life

Hare was born in Ontario.[2] He studied violin with Austrian immigrant Greza de Grez.[3]


As a young man Hare performed as a concert violinist.[4]

Hare joined the music department at Mount Allison University in Sackville New Brunswick, and took over the direction of the Mount Allison College Symphony Orchestra in 1945.[2] In 1949 he founded the Calgary Symphony Orchestra, composed largely of musicians from the Mount Allison music program.[5] The Symphony played a mix of contemporary and classical music.[6] Hare continued to conduct the orchestra for a number of years,[7] while teaching string and orchestral classes at Mount Royal College. He and his wife, pianist Dorothy Swetnam, performed concerts as a duet.[8]

Hare later taught music at the University of Portland.[9] While there he wrote music reviews for the Portland Reporter newspaper.[10]
