“A Pocket of Time” – Suzie LeBlanc concert in tribute to Elizabeth Bishop

On Sunday evening, 13 November 2016, at 7:00 p.m., at the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts, in Halifax, N.S., soprano Suzie LeBlanc, Honorary Patron of the EBSNS, will present a concert in tribute to Elizabeth Bishop, “A Pocket of Time.” She will perform some of the settings of Bishop poems that she commissioned for the Elizabeth Bishop Centenary in 2011 and premiere a new one. She will be joined by the Blue Engine String Quartet and pianist Robert Kortgaard. This concert is presented by Cecilia Concerts. You can find out more about this concert by clicking here.

I am pleased to say that I will give a short pre-concert talk, focused on Elizabeth Bishop’s love of music.
