Hussein Janmohamed on life as a conductor

Our Campus: Hussein Janmohamed on life as a conductorHussein Janmohamed, a grad student in conducting at UBC’s School of Music, walks around campus waving his arms and turning conversation into melody. He’s made his life revolve around what he loves most: choir music.

“In junior high, the jazz choir came to sing at our school, and I just fell in love. So I sang in four choirs all through high school,” said Janmohamed.

Janmohamed was raised with an eclectic ear for music. At age six he moved from Nairobi, Kenya to Red Deer, Alberta, where he grew up and discovered his love for choral music. He now holds a bachelor degree in general music studies and a master’s in opera production from UBC.
