Salt Spring Island – In May, two forces of Canadian classical music come together for a very special concert. Elektra is delighted to collaborate for the first time with soprano Suzie LeBlanc in a program of music about music entitled I am in Need of Music, ranging from Henry Purcell to the world premiere of a work by Vancouver composer and Elektra pianist Stephen Smith. Internationally celebrated for her performances of early music, LeBlanc is a creative and curious musician, delving into a rich diversity of styles, cultures, and words. Expect the unexpected as Elektra and LeBlanc share the stage in this intimate and compelling program.
Suzie LeBlanc CM is a Canadian soprano and early music specialist. She is also active as a teacher. She was named a member of the Order of Canada in 2014 for her contributions to music and Acadian culture.
