Val Brandt

Val was a copywriter for years before tiptoeing into the 1989 Edmonton Fringe with her first play, The Puff ā€˜nā€™ Blow Boys. Her plays have been performed in theatres and festivals across Canada. More recently, she has enjoyed expressing herself through musical collaborations: 2 operas with composer Allan Gilliland; choral pieces set by John Estacio; as well as art songs, jazz pieces, a cantata, and song cycle with various composers.
