Each draw winner is selected randomly by random.org from all eligible entries received by  the specified entry deadline.

We recommend that you contact us no later than two full weeks before your event, but we may still be able to run a draw on much shorter notice.

Awarded! Tickets to hear the Emie R. Roussel Trio at the NAC

photo: Yvan CouillardCongratulations to Ross Rankin, who won a pair of tickets to hear the Emie R. Roussel Trio  on Friday, April 10 at the NAC Fourth Stage. NAC Presents generously donated these tickets.

Pianist Emie Rioux Roussel is known for her solid yet nuanced compositions. She began classical piano lessons at age five, then studied jazz with her father, jazz pianist Martin Roussel, and with Lorraine Desmarais, and obtained a diploma (first class honours) in jazz piano performance. In 2011 she completed her BA in jazz piano performance at the University of Montreal. She burst onto Quebec’s live music scene in 2007, and has shared the stage with such leading talents as Terry Clarke, Mike Gauthier, Éric Lagacé, Alex Bellegarde, Dave Watts, Michel Berthiaume and Norman Lachapelle.

Read the OttawaJazzScene.ca interview with her, Emie Roussel likes her jazz energetic, complex – and accessible.

The correct answer to the skill testing question, "What kind of sound can you expect to hear in this performance ?" was "Quebec’s contemporary jazz sound: resolutely young, rhythm-based, and infused with straightforward rock and pop harmonies."
