When we moved to Ottawa, I left my job in marketing research to become a full time caregiver to our children, and I have been in that role ever since. But with the kids now being older and more independent, I have started taking on some freelance projects. And as these things tend to go, things went from 0 to 60 really fast and I almost had to skip this month’s Business Beat. But while I was working away on my first report, I realized it gave me the perfect topic to write about: work/study/meeting spots in Old Ottawa South.

Ebonies in Harmony is a two clarinet-one piano trio featuring Sylvie Duchesneau (clarinet-bass clarinet) and Roxanne Léveillé (clarinet) and myself, Fabien Tousignant (piano). We invite you to experience a wonderful repertoire which blends the virtuosity and “velouté” of these instruments. We have put together a nice programme of some favorites of the classical repertoire arranged for two clarinets and piano, along with pieces written specifically for this kind of ensemble. You will have the opportunity to hear works by Mendelssohn, Ponchielli, Dvořák, some Klezmer and more.
