Lesley Sutherland is a composer, conductor, and community minded musical catalyst, recently arrived from Vancouver with her daughter. In addition to teaching choir and composing, she is also working on new projects that focus on the stories of Powell River, her new home.
I didn't know anything about Powell River when I first came. All I knew was that it was the most beautiful place I had ever been to. And then, miraculously, it ended up being also the most musical and artistic community I've ever come across, which was thrilling for me.
