This was the third event I have performed at for CREA, the Canadian Real Estate Association. The annual “President’s Dinner” brings the current and former presidents of the organization to Ottawa from all across Canada.
This amazing gala marked the 100th anniversary of Canadian women securing the vote. It was an incredible honour to perform for this unprecedented gathering of women in politics from across Canada, including former Prime Minister Kim Campbell.
A little introduction for those who don’t know me. I am a full-time musician with over 15 years in the event biz. I am originally from Toronto and studied classical piano with the Royal Conservatory of Music from the age of 6.
