Fannie going solo

By Gordon Lambie

This Friday evening Fannie Gaudette, known within the Lennoxville community for her long-time involvement with the Bishop’s University Singers as accompanist and artistic director, will take to the stage at Bandeen Hall for a very different kind of show. For the first time, Gaudette will perform as a singer/songwriter, presenting original compositions that she has written for the words of local poet Normand Achim.
“It’s something completely new and unexpected,” Gaudette said, calling the idea of solo performance a dream she never had. “It took me forty years to realize that, oh my God, this is so much fun. Now I’m really discovering singing and it’s great. I love it.” Gaudette pointed to Achim, who has been a part of her family for decades, as the driving force behind the unplanned project.
