Marcie, Marie, and Roxanne - three part harmony in strange tongues.

Quotes from Colleagues

"After performing over 600 shows with Marcie Brown at the Cirque du Soleil "O" show between 2002 and 2004, I have witnessed her professionalism and devotion to the art of music closely. She performed nightly on her instrument magnificently, and she amazed me with her brilliant interpretation of cello repertoire. She also brought a fresh and colorful interpretation to the vocal harmonies."
—Roxanne Potvin, lead singer of the Cirque du Soleil "O" show
"Marcie was the natural leader of the Cirque du Soleil "O" show Orchestra. She was an inexhaustible source of creative ideas and, if anything did not work musically, she could always find why and positively suggest efficient ways to rehearse the passages to make them magical. She is an amazingly reliable, inspiring, and versatile musician. Her energy was vibrant and infectious."
-Marie Marceau, flute, reeds, and horns: Cirque du Soleil "O" Show
