We’re back in the deep freeze here in Quebec. Will it never end? But we’re also in the middle of recital season, a time when the students at Conservatoire de Musique give recitals and what a joy they are to attend. Today it was pianists…amazing pianists. Marie Robitaille, Sophie Doyon, Brigitte Legendre, Bruce Gaulin-Boilard, Manuella Gagnon, Corolane Tremblay, and Ariane Filion-Thériault each graced us with their musical prowess.
And while they did, Yvan and I sketched, though I have to admit that at times I just stopped, listened and watched magical hands on keys. But here are a couple sketches I did during the nearly two hours of music. Thanks to the Conservatoire, the students, and Suzanne Beaubien-Lowe (their teacher) for making a very cold day seem just a little bit warmer.
