It’s hard to believe June is finally here. The sun is shining, patios are open, and with the beautiful weather comes lots of performance opportunities. I decided that the best way to let all my friends and fans keep up with what I’m doing this month would be to summarize it in a handy newsletter. First, I’m happy to announce that I have been selected as one of eight winners of the Astral Emerging Artist Awards presented by Astral Radio! To celebrate this award I was will performing in a free concert with the other winners at the National Arts Centre on Wednesday June 22nd . More details can be found below.

I am also very excited to announce that I have recently decided to go away to New York City to study for July and August! That means that this month will be your last chance to catch a show before I head down to the big apple! Don’t be too sad! I’ll be back in the fall with my zest for life and music renewed. Thanks for being such a supportive community. I’m really looking forward to seeing you all before I go. Have a wonderful summer!

Lots of love,

Renée
