88.5 CBC Radio One Presents Sunday-@-the Segal Featuring Ranee Lee
November 2006


Sunday-@-the Segal

A series of intimate conversation and riveting lectures at
The Leanor and Alvin Segal Theatre

Ranee Lee

Don't miss this special edition of Sunday-@-the-Segal as we welcome one of Canada’s most popular jazz vocalists and recording artists, Ranee Lee. CBC Radio's Patti Schmidt, host of the popular weekend program, Cinq à Six, will be in conversation with Ms Lee in advance of the opening of The Satchmo' Suite - a musical play about the relationship between a modern-day black classical cellist and the 'Father of Jazz' himself, Louis Armstrong.

Ranee Lee has performed with many of the greatest names in jazz. An award winning actress, she starred in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill and in Having Our Say at The Segal Theatre. Also a respected faculty member at Laval and McGill universities, she received the Outstanding Service to Jazz Education award from the International Association of Jazz Educators. Other awards to her credit include Top Canadian Female Jazz Vocalist, presented by Jazz Report magazine and Best Female Jazz Vocalist from the AFIM. In February of this year she was given Canada’s highest civilian honour and invested as a Member of the Order of Canada.
