WRIGHT, Donald "Don" John Alexander, B.A., D.M., L.M., Member of Order of Canada
Don passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto after a brief illness on June 27th, 2006 in his 98th year. His beloved wife Lillian, his life partner and best friend, predeceased him on January 12, 1993. Sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sister Dr. Mary Jean WRIGHT of London, Ontario, son Timothy and his wife Sharon (née EMPRINGHAM) of Sarnia, daughter Priscilla of Toronto, son Patrick (predeceased in 1993), grand_sons and granddaughters Christopher and his wife Katrin (née ZEUNER) of Toronto, Brian and his wife Susan (née PRINCE) of Australia, Pamela WHITTAKER of Delaware, Ontario, Liam and his wife Louise of Toronto, Alyssa of Cannington and Doctor Tarah and her husband Daniel of Halifax, great-grand_sons Connor, Kyle, Corwin, Benjamin and Aidan, and great-granddaughters Cassidy and Lilly. Don really lived a charmed life. He was born in Strathroy, Ontario to Ernest and Jean (nee CLARK) WRIGHT in 1908. He had three brothers and a sister Doctor Mary WRIGHT. The family was very involved in theatre and music and the boys formed the "Wright Brothers Orchestra" which had a great following during their school years and on through university. Don met his "Lilly Belle" (Lillian (née MEIGHEN,) the daughter of the Right Honourable Arthur MEIGHEN and his wife Isabel (nee COX) at one of the dances and the rest was history. They courted each other for their entire lives together. At the University of Western Ontario, Don started the U.W.O. marching band -- an institution that continues to this day. He was a very successful athlete as a sprinter, high hurdler and his long jump record of twenty-three feet, eight inches held for over a quarter century. Don taught music, history, Latin and Greek for several years at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London and all of his classes were over-subscribed. His pedagogical talents were prodigious and his former pupils still rave about his classes more than 60 years after he taught them. Don became supervisor of music for the London Board of Education and from there he was recruited to take over the reins of CFPL Radio. He completely remodeled the studios and control rooms and simultaneously brought new and exciting programming to life. He increased the audience levels many times over. His " CFPL Goes Calling" brought many talented people (both musical and other forms of radio entertainment) onto the airwaves. Such voices as Max Ferguson (Rawhide), Ward Cornell, John Tretheway and Murray Brown were all brought into CFPL by Don. His outstanding creation while there was his "Don Wright Chorus" which entranced audiences throughout both Canada and the U.S. all through the early 1950s. Don moved to Toronto in 1955 and continued his advertising "jingle" business in addition to being Musical Director for the Denny Vaughn Show, Wayne and Schuster and the Cliff McKey show "Holiday Ranch". He developed a new radio choir called the Don Wright Singers which performed for several years. As his career matured he composed a series of provincial anthems presented in a performance package called "Proudly we Praise", a tribute to Canada, which could be performed by professionals or amateurs, and Don was very proud to be asked to arrange and conduct a performance of this work on Parliament Hill on Canada's Centennial for Queen Elizabeth II. Don's philanthropy in later years was generous and impressive. He donated to track and field endeavours and musical programmes at many universities across Canada. He received several Honourary Doctorates from Canadian Universities for these efforts, and the faculties of music at U.W.O. and Victoria University bear his name. Grace Hospital in Toronto as well as Saint Michael's Hospital's maternity centres bear his and Lillian's names. A celebration of his life will be held in Saint_James Cathedral, 65 Church Street, (at King Street East) Toronto on Thursday, July 6th at 11 o'clock. A reception will follow.

Don WRIGHT, Musician And Teacher (1908-2006)
Composer wrote jingles for products from Bromo-Seltzer to Coffee Crisp and formed a charitable foundation that endowed music faculties and athletic programs across Canada, Sandra MARTIN writes
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Known as the jingle king for writing the words and music for hundreds of commercials for products such as Bromo-Seltzer (his daughter Priscilla sang the vocals), Carling's Red Cap Ale, Tide, Kelvinator and Coffee Crisp, Don WRIGHT was a natural showman and educator, and a very talented musician. As a teenager, he played the trumpet in The Wright Brothers Orchestra, a dance band started by his father. Later, he founded both the Don Wright Chorus and the Don Wright Singers, and composed and conducted music for radio, television and documentary films.
Prodigiously hard-working, Mr. WRIGHT amassed many millions of dollars in a long and productive life, from royalties, wise investments and the cushion provided by his beloved wife Lillian's inheritance from her father, former prime minister Sir Arthur MEIGHEN. He had a motto: "He who gives while he lives also knows where it goes." Since forming the Don Wright Charitable Foundation, in 1966, he had been true to that adage by endowing music faculties and athletic programs at universities across the country, funding hospital maternity wings in honour of his wife's love of babies, as well as giving $3-million to his alma mater, the University of Western Ontario.
Donald John Alexander WRIGHT was one of five children (four boys and a girl) of Ernest Joel (Ernie) and Mary Jean (Mamie) WRIGHT from Strathroy, Ontario The WRIGHTs had emigrated from Exeter in England in the 1850s, not long before Mamie's parents, the Clarks, had arrived from Scotland.
Ernie loved to sing and act in minstrel shows and Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. At 18, he was spotted by scouts from a New York company who invited him to move to the United States to become a professional actor. His father's stern disapproval made him decline the offer. Instead, he opened a store in Strathroy, selling pianos and other musical instruments, and founded his own piano-manufacturing company in 1907, which flourished until the mid-1920s when the factory burned down.
Mamie also loved to sing and play the piano, and is said to have taught her four sons a new song every week before they were old enough to go to school. Donald sang in public, "right on key," at the age of 2, and then climbed on his proud mother's lap and went to sleep, according to a family memoir written by Mr. WRIGHT's sister, Mary Jean WRIGHT, an emeritus professor of psychology at University of Western Ontario.
Donald joined the church choir before he could read, having been taught the words of the processional and recessional hymns by his mother, and had taught himself to play the trumpet by the time he was 10.
His father Ernie organized garden parties to promote his pianos and to showcase his sons and himself as entertainers. They were so good that the family was hired to tour the garden-party circuit, offering one-hour concerts in 20-minute segments. Donald was also studying the cello with Howard GORDON, who had once played with the Edinburgh Symphony. At 14, Donald won the gold medal in a nationwide competition held at Massey Hall in Toronto. The same year, he and his three brothers put together a five-piece dance band (with Donald on the trumpet) and landed a gig playing for open-air dancing at nearby Brights Grove.
Young Donald was an exemplary student, but he did have some foibles. A sleepwalker, he got up one night, left the house and walked across the street to a neighbour's house -- unconsciously. He also couldn't stand the ticking of an alarm clock, and would scream "stop the clock" in the middle of the night until somebody found the offending instrument and buried it in the laundry hamper in the bathroom. In high school, he excelled in track and field, winning the regional track championships in 1928 and 1929. And he scored high marks academically until his fifth year of high school, when he and a friend made a pact to do absolutely no work, failed all their exams and had to repeat the year. Waking up, at least figuratively, Mr. WRIGHT realized that if he wanted to study honours classics at university, he needed Greek, so he mastered the four-year Greek curriculum with a tutor and earned an entrance scholarship to University of Western Ontario in 1929.
He kept his scholarship through four years of undergraduate work, graduating in 1933 with the Ferguson Trophy. As an athlete, he reigned supreme in the hurdles and set a broad-jump record that stood for more than 40 years. Meanwhile, he was hyperactive musically, leading the university orchestra, starting the marching band and arranging all the music, and serving as musical director for The Wright Brothers Orchestra.
At its peak, the dance band had nine players, travelled in its own van and played summer resorts in Port Elgin and then in Hamilton. Real life intruded in 1934, when Ernest, the second brother, was called to the bar and was told by a senior barrister in his firm that it was not on for a lawyer to play in a dance band. By then, Donald WRIGHT had graduated from the Ontario College of Education and had accepted a teaching job beginning that September at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London. His employers also looked askance at his musical sideline. Besides, during the Depression, it was frowned upon to hold more than one paying job.
He met Lillian MEIGHEN, his future wife, in the summer of 1930 at the old Embassy night club in Toronto. Mr. WRIGHT and his brothers were playing, she was there dancing with Friends. As Mr. WRIGHT's sister tells the story, Ms. MEIGHEN fell in love with the trumpet player and persuaded her brother Max, a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity (as were three of the WRIGHT brothers,) to bring his "fraternal" brother home so she could meet him.
They were married five years later, after a thorough vetting by her father, who took his daughter on a long trip to Australia to separate the lovers and withheld his consent for the nuptials until Mr. WRIGHT had taught for a year and saved $1,000. The couple lived in London, where their three children were born, until they moved to Toronto in 1956, buying a large house on Chestnut Park Road where Mr. WRIGHT continued to live after his wife died of Alzheimer's disease in 1993.
As a schoolteacher, Mr. WRIGHT was hired to instruct students in classics and history and to promote music in the school. The challenge was to encourage children not only to sing, but to do it with enthusiasm and in harmony. Mr. WRIGHT put his innovative ideas into a series of manuals outlining his techniques for arranging music for the changing voice, and eventually gave copies to every high school in Ontario, at his own cost. He also organized and conducted a school orchestra and a glee club at Sir Adam Beck, all of which led to an invitation in 1940 to become director of music for all London schools, a position he held until 1946.
Mr. WRIGHT tried to enlist when the Second World War erupted, but instead of being sent overseas he was commanded to put on shows to entertain the troops at their training centres. For the next six years, in addition to his "day" job, he and his army of volunteers mounted three shows a week, never putting on the same program twice in the same place, with Mr. WRIGHT planning the performances, writing the music and conducting the musicians.
When the war ended, he gave up teaching and became manager of radio station CFPL in London, where he hugely improved the ratings and developed a staff orchestra and choir known as the Don Wright Chorus. In 1950, he went out on his own, founding Don Wright Productions. His chorus was soon being heard on major radio networks here and in the United States, and he expanded his interest in music education by publishing Youthful Voices and other manuals, and giving workshops in many cities on both sides of the border.
He moved into television big time in the 1950s, writing jingles for commercials, founding the Don Wright Singers, serving as musical director for The Denny Vaughn Show, Cliff McKay's Holiday Ranch and The Wayne and Shuster Show, and composing the music for several documentary films including A Day to Remember and The Unknown Country. All this creative and frenetic activity came to a halt in December, 1961, when he suffered a heart attack that forced him to convalesce for three months and then to ease his workload -- somewhat.
When the Queen came to Canada in centennial year, Mr. WRIGHT composed, produced and conducted a medley of songs entitled Proudly We Praise, highlighting each province and territory, for the two-day celebrations on Parliament Hill on June 30 and July 1. He was congratulated by the Queen and given the Centennial Medal.
His last major publication was a 20-volume thesaurus entitled Fifty Years of Music with Don Wright. He donated copies to teachers' colleges and universities across Canada.
Donald John Alexander WRIGHT was born in Strathroy, Ontario, on September 6, 1908. He died at home in Toronto on June 27, after a brief illness. He was 97. Predeceased by his wife Lillian and his son Patrick, he is survived by his children Timothy and Priscilla, several grandchildren and great grandchildren, his sister Mary Jean and his extended family. His life will be celebrated at Saint_James Cathedral in Toronto on Thursday at 11 a.m.
