Cocktails & Conversation
When I hear of all the things Benoit has going on, I am simultaneously in awe and exhausted! If you have ever had the pleasure to take an Artistic performance at Timucua, you have Benoit to thank for it! As the conductor for Cirque du Soleil for nearly 20 years, Benoit is no stranger to bringing the Arts to life. I was so glad to be able to sit down and chat the Timucua Arts Foundation, his growing up in Canada and his love of many different types of bread. Things like Timucua are one of the things I love about Orlando. I hope you ENJOY learning about all the things Benoit is up to! Plus there is a Tito’s Handmade Vodka recipe is the so fit for SUMMER!!
UM 96: Making the Arts Accessible to All–Benoit Glazer of The Timucua Arts Foundation
The Unstarving Musician
Benoit Glazer and the Timucua Arts Foundation believe that the visual and performing arts should be accessible to everyone. What started out as house concerts to fill a gap in his music loving heart, has become a mission to present and inspire great music and art in Central Florida. The Timucua Arts Foundation does this through performance and education. Prior to the creation of the Timucua Arts Foundation, Benoit is perhaps best known for his work as conductor of Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba. He also happens to be an accomplished arranger, trumpet player, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. Ben and wife Élaine Corriveau literally put everything they had into creating a home that is by all accounts, a truly impressive performing arts center. Ben half jokingly says they’ll never be able to retire as a result. In this episode, Benoit walks us through the story and some of the lessons learned along the way. Ben and his wife Elaine have created something extraordinary. You hear the TedX version of their journey in this YouTube video. Show notes at UnstarvingMusician.com
