Celebrating the Piano Man

Two great pianists will get together Monday, August 29, at 6 p.m. in the foyer of the Glenn Gould Studio, inside the CBC building, 250 Front St. W., Toronto.

That’s when the friends of Brian Vallee will gather for a memorial celebrating his life. As most of those present will certainly know, Brian, like Glenn Gould, spent  a lot of time tinkling the ivories. Musicologists will forever debate which artist made the larger contribution to music. The debate almost certainly will continue throughout the evening on August 29.

We cannot guarantee that either Brian or Glenn will be present, but just in case there will be a piano and it will be available to both artists.

However it turns out, if you loved Brian, it is an evening you won’t want to miss.

There will be drinks, laughter, memories, a tear or two, and–whatever gods there are help us–an open microphone.
