Song recital scheduled for October 29

SACKVILLE, NB — On Saturday, October 29 at 8 p.m. in Brunton Auditorium, the department of music will present a collaborative recital featuring soprano Monette Gould and pianist Edmund Dawe. The artists will perform a varied program which will include works by Richard Strauss, Francis Poulenc, Henri Duparc, Georges Bizet, George Gershwin, and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Soprano Monette Gould is an accomplished stage performer who has performed throughout Canada, and is known for her sensitivity and musicality. After early vocal study and choral experience in the Moncton area, Monette Gould studied in Toronto where she completed performance diplomas in vocal and opera performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, and the University of Toronto. While there, she appeared in several opera productions, including the roles of Fiordiligi in Mozart’s Cosí fan tutte, the Countess in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, and Tatiana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. In 1998, she appeared as Mimi in Opera New Brunswick’s production of Puccini’s La BohPme. Monette presently teaches vocal performance at Mount Allison University and also privately. She is artistic director for the concert series Les airs d‚été at the Ste-Anne-de-Beaumont Historical Church, and is active throughout the Maritimes as a vocal adjudicator and clinician.

Praised for his technical command of the piano and artistic interpretations, Edmund Dawe has performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist in Canada, the United States, Great Britain, France, Hong Kong, and Korea. His recordings and performances are frequently heard in regional and national CBC broadcasts. His second solo CD release, Sonatas, was nominated for a 2004 East Coast Music Award (Best Classical). Edmund’s work as an artist teacher has been widely recognized, and he has received numerous awards throughout his career, including grants from the Canada Council, The Canadian Consulate General, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the New Brunswick Arts Branch, and the Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent on Records. In 1996 and 2001, he was the recipient of a Paul Paré Award for excellence in teaching and performance at Mount Allison University where he is professor of piano, and served as head of the department of music from 1997-2003. Edmund’s work as a clinician, adjudicator, and keynote speaker has taken him to music festivals and pedagogy conferences across Canada, in the United States, and Australia.

The public is cordially invited to this recital for which there is no admission charge. For further information, please contact the department of music at 364-2374 (
