You are enough…

May 19th, 2020 by admin

Recently I have been offered some great opportunities including getting to perform as part of Music NB’s “NB at Home” concert series, and the National Arts Centre’s “Canada Performs” series.  These are both great opportunities to reach a larger audience, and are actually paid performances, which is rare in these days of performing online!
