Multi-Talented Isabelle Thériault is a Cultural Ambassador for Acadia


Isabelle Thériault is a multi-talented artist and instrumentalist. She began her career as a musical accompanist for various artists such as Sandra LeCouteur, Pascal Lejeune and Lennie Gallant before founding the musical group “Les Muses”. She then served as musical director for the ECMA winning group “Ode à l’Acadie”. As a dominant player in the cultural life of Acadia, Isabelle has served as artistic director for various productions, events and SOCAN circles.

In 2010, Isabelle founded Isabelle Thériault Inc. in Caraquet, at the former Espace Tournesol Inc. location. Isabelle Thériault Inc. is a multi-faceted company that focuses on production, publishing and musical education. Through the production side of her business, Isabelle works as an artistic and musical director. New Brunswick only has a few of these directors and Isabelle is proud to offer this service in the Acadian Peninsula and beyond. Her clients include professional companies, festivals, cultural associations as well as television and radio.

The newest addition to her business is the publishing service which was added in October, 2013. This aspect of her company deals with the management of copyrights and royalties for artists and composers. Since this phenomenal entrepreneur has an impressive catalogue of music, she ensures maximum revenues for artists, composers and arrangers.

Isabelle also offers various training to youth through her academy. Its mission is to offer musical training to young artists and to prepare them for an eventual career in music by offering a variety of experiences similar to those of professional artists. Students can learn through 25 week programs from October to May, private lessons, group workshops as well as live productions. With the creation of her academy, she also gave birth to the FALABELLA choir, a musical group for women from the Acadian Peninsula.

Isabelle believes in giving back to her community and is involved in many community groups and organizations. She is President of Downtown Caraquet, serves on the Commission culturelle de Caraquet’s board of directors, is a member of MICRO, a member of the Chamber of Commerce as well as a columnist for l’Acadie Nouvelle.

This talented trailblazer is only 33 years old and has either won or been nominated for many achievements including a JUNO nod in 2012 for her live DVD “Drumshow”. In 2013, the NB Association of CBDCs named Isabelle Thériault “Female Entrepreneur of the Year” for the Acadian Peninsula.

"I would like to thank you for picking Ben's Clothing for the retail consulting makeover.  I very much enjoyed talking to Barbara.  She has wonderful insites on what to do to refresh my store.  I was extremly excited of the ideas put together thats in my budget for now and also in the near future.
 
The 1st part of the seminar, had opened my eyes to the reality of my challenges and concerns, statistics, operating cost and marketing which is a huge part that can not be ignored. It's a must to have a list of issues to know it and control it.  This is a large part of my battles that I face but placed them in the back burner. 
 
When Barbara came into my store I wasn't sure what to expect because in the seminar she was leaning towards makeovers for a new store or toronto style store.  I had no idea that a little bit of paint in a different color will bring out what I want to promote.  She had alot of new ideas that are in the budget and I'm going to make it happen!
 
Thank you again for filling me in with the seminars that are offered.  I'm always willing to get informed and always moving forward."
