Brian Vallee's family, friends and former colleagues will gather around a piano Aug. 29 to celebrate the life and times of the multi-talented writer, author, documentary producer, party pianist.
Longtime friend Ron Base has all of the details on his blog.
"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."
Ron says "there will be drinks, laughter, memories, a tear or two, and - whatever gods there are help us - an open microphone."
