with soprano Suzie LeBlanc

Two forces of Canadian classical music come together for a very special concert in Vancouver.  Montreal-based soprano Suzie LeBlanc is known around the world for her interpretations of early music. Vancouver has been a home-away-from-home for her many summers, as she has taken leading roles in baroque operas and projects by Early Music Vancouver. But did you know this consummate performer is also passionate about other kinds of music?  In her appearance as guest artist with Elektra on May 4, Suzie will share her passions for the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop and the music of her Acadian roots as well as Purcell’s famous Music for a While. Titled I am in Need of Music, this concert offers the music of Gwyneth Walker, Alan Bevan, Pärt Uusberg, world premiere compositions by Nicholas Ryan Kelly and Stephen Smith, and world premiere arrangements by Laura Hawley and our recent guest, Marie-Claire Saindon.
