Big Soul Project welcomed Roxanne Goodman in 2008 as their Music Director. She has taken great care and diligence in developing BSP and always believes that they have the ability to inspire and entertain their audiences. Roxanne believes that empowerment comes from finding one’s unique purpose and letting it shine through. Under her direction, BSP has grown and evolved to find its own voice and sound.
In addition to her passion for music as an expression of community empowerment and inspiration, Roxanne brings a wealth of experience to this position.
With an education in classical piano under the tutelage of international concert pianist and adjudicator the late Rose Goldblatt (formerly of McGill University), Roxanne's interest in voice and composition eventually led her to pursue studies at Concordia University where her tutors included Madeleine Thériault and Jerri Brown.
Roxanne is a well-known figure in the Ottawa musical community and was awarded the Community Engagement Award for her contribution to creating healthy communities through song. She has performed at many venues such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa’s Château Laurier, as well as international concerts. She is known as the “Atmoshere Provider” and is sought out for private functions.
Roxanne functions in many roles – teacher, musical coach, composer, singer, pianist, and motivational speaker. Yet she has the ability to make you feel that she is speaking directly to you in a crowded room.
