Music Tells A Story
Sue Gould is passionate about piano! and music of all types. Classically trained with regular doses of jazz and pop music, Sue has made herself versatile in all genres and is especially happy when collaborating with other musicians and composers.
An award winning Pianist, Sue has been performing and teaching music for over 40 years. She holds a Bachelor of Music with Distinction in Piano Performance from the University of Victoria and received full scholarship to study at the Banff Centre for the Performing Arts. Ms. Gould has travelled extensively throughout BC and Alberta performing in communities large and small and spent time as a faculty member at the Banff Centre for the Arts. She can be found performing with a variety of ensembles including the Music Mosaic piano trio, the Selkirk Trio, Storm Mountain Trio, the Lily Quartet, Fearing Gould, The Dragonfly Sisters and just about any other group who calls her up! She is also the Music Director and conductor of the Purcell Mountain Orchestra.
During her days at the Banff Centre, Sue was drawn further into the mountains which surrounded her. After a brief hiatus from music in order to pursue mountaineering more seriously, she underwent her guiding certification and became a member of Association of Canadian Mountain Guides. She is also a professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association. More recently she has become the Director of Guide Operations for Great Canadian Heliskiing and the first woman director on the board at HeliCat Canada.
Currently Sue lives in Golden, BC.
