Merle Fausett: Queen's Service Medal
Merle Fausett has always been a singer and has devoted much of her life to music which is why she is the recipient of a Queen's Service Medal on this year's Queen's Birthday Honours list.
Besides singing in our choir, where she is the deputy conductor, she has been involved with music on a voluntary basis in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato for more than 60 years.
She was the musical director of the Tauranga Civic Choir from 1979 to 1991 and has conducted the Silver Singers since 2014, a choir of local retirees who perform at rest homes and retirement villages. She has also been involved in the BOP Symphonia
