“I am in need of music” launched in Ottawa

On 12 November 2013, Suzie LeBlanc held another launch for the EB legacy recording in Ottawa. It was organized by Monique Léger, a friend of Suzie’s since her childhood in Moncton, and Patrick Smith, an Ottawa realtor and horse whisperer (a man of many talents!). The gathering was held at Heritage Wallis House, 589 Rideau Street, the home of Mary Albota. About 50 people attended. Suzie was accompanied by pianist Frédérique Lacroix. Some of the notable guests were André Jutras, Chair of the Music Production grant program of the Canada Council, which helped support the CD; David Jarraway of University of Ottawa; and Sylvie Bigras. Suzie reports that CBC Radio 2 has chosen “In am in need of music” as the CD of the week, this week. Congratulations! Yet another celebration of this important project will take place “down under,” that is, in Australia. Australian composer and musician Dindy Vaughan will be hosting a launch later this month. If we get some photos, I’ll be sure to post them. Dindy held a fund-raiser for the CD last year. She has been wonderfully supportive of this endeavour. Remember, you can purchase the CD, it makes a wonderful Christmas gift, through Suzie’s website: www.suzieleblanc.com or CentreDiscs’s website: http://www.musiccentre.ca/node/77772 or at ArkivMusic’s website: http://www.arkivmusic.com/classical/Name/Suzie-LeBlanc/Performer/15333-2. Stay tuned for more updates.
