About

Composer, conductor and organist Roger Bergs is a musician of widely diverse interests. His compositions have been commissioned, performed and recorded by ensembles ranging from the Symphony Orchestras of Toronto, Winnipeg and Edmonton, and the Esprit Orchestra to the Elmer Iselar Singers and the Hannaford Street Silver Band. He serves as conductor and Artistic Director of Musicata – Hamilton’s Voices, and as Music Director of Central Presbyterian Church. He has close to thirty years’ experience leading musical worship in churches, and has led music for Christian conferences and events throughout that time. In addition to teaching at Redeemer, he is a Sessional Lecturer in Music at the University of Toronto (where he teaches composition and theory) and an adjunct faculty member at Toronto Baptist Seminary (where he teaches worship). 

Roger lives in Toronto with his wife Tina, who teaches at Westminster Classical Christian Academy, two teenage daughters and a boisterous Australian Shepherd.
