Better known by her stage name, Isabella, is a native of France where she has sang professionally for 15 years before relocating to Canada 17 years ago. She now resides in Rogersville, NB with her husband and their 12 year old daughter.

The Saint Michael’s Basilica Capital Fundraising Campaign officially kicked off in June 2012 for the primary purpose of raising one million dollars over a five year period to strengthen the financial and structural future of the basilica. To date, the campaign has raised $510,000 thanks to the generosity of many current and former parishioners along with a few interested citizens who have no direct affiliation with the parish.

Tickets are $20 per person and tickets will be sold at the door.
