On October 10, 2018, our Cathy Wilcox was presented the Mayor’s City Builder Award in recognition of her contribution to Ottawa through music and outreach. The Mayor’s City Builder Award is a civic honour created to recognize an individual, group or organization that, through outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action, has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making our city a better place today and for the future. Says Cathy,
“At the door to the rehearsal, the accountant, and AI specialist, the father, the wife, the mother, the caregiver….these disappear and
we become our alter egos, a saxophonist, a bass player, a percussionist, a flautist….
“And we leave the rehearsal wearing our new persona, and a BIG HUGE SMILE, which we carry back home.”
