From his teenage years to now, he has performed in numerous piano and organ concerts, involving orchestral accompaniment and solo performances. He has toured throughout France and Europe as piano soloist and accompanist for the Orchestral Ensemble of North Normandy. During his fifteen years as the director of a music school in Normandy and as a choir director in Pays de Bray, France, he introduced diverse styles of music into his programs. <br> <br> In 1989, he won the  Prix de la Meilleure Musique (Award for Best Music) granted by the Ministry of Culture for his compositions written for the musical "Les Clefs de la Libert" (The Keys to Liberty). In 1993, he directed Mozart's Requiem with the Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra based in Germany. Since 1996, Michel has published more than forty compilations of piano scores and has had the opportunity to work with several elite French singers and composers, such as Jean-Jacques Goldman, Celine Dion, Francis Cabrel, and Pascal Obispo to name just a few. <br><br> Leclerc, who is a member of several professional music societies including, SACEM, SACD and ADAMI, held the position of  Artistic Director of the "Jazz & Variety" departments of two French music publishers, Editions Henry Lemoine and Editions Hit Diffusion. In 2007, he created his own production company, MILDO Productions (www.mildo-productions.com). <br><br> Michel recently completed composition of an opera rock lyric entitled "TERRA" to be performed in Paris in 2013. </p> <br> <P ALIGN=Center><img src="michel piano.jpg" width="55%" height="65%" border="1"> <P ALIGN=Center><img src="michel thank you2.jpg" width="83%" height="60%" border="1"> <P ALIGN=Center><img src="michel signature.jpg" width="35%" height="20%" border="1"> <br> <br> <br> <DIV ALIGN=CENTER><table style="filter:DROPSHADOW(color=#2953A6, strength=5)"> <tr><td><font style="font-family: Trebuchet MS; font-size:30px; color: FFFFFF;"> ~ k& ~ </font></td></tr></table><p> <br> <br> <br> <DIV ALIGN=CENTER><table style="filter:DROPSHADOW(color=#2953A6, strength=5)"> <tr><td><font style="font-family: Lucida Sans Unicode; font-size:25px; color: FFFFFF;"> ENGLISH TRANSLATION </font></td></tr></table> <p><DIV ALIGN=CENTER><a style="font: 13pt Georgia;color:#000000;"> I am very happy to have had the opportunity to transcribe for piano the songs of a unique voice and talent recognized by all. I hope that pianists will cherish these transcriptions, which should remain as timeless and long-lasting as the original songs. Finally, I would like to personally thank Amber Noelle Mitchell for conceiving the idea of this songbook. <br/> <br/> <b>~ Michel Leclerc </b> <br> <i>(Composer, Arranger)</i> </p> <br/> <br> <br> <DIV ALIGN=CENTER><table style="filter:DROPSHADOW(color=#2953A6, strength=5)"> <tr><td><font style="font-family: Trebuchet MS; font-size:30px; color: FFFFFF;"> ~ k& ~ </font></td></tr></table><p> <br> <br> <br> <br> <hr> <DIV ALIGN=CENTER><h3> <a style="font: 12pt Lucida Sans Unicode;color:##6666FF;"><p> Copyright  2012 Piano Solos From the Heart.
