“My very first concert in Canada was almost forty years ago and it was — good guess — for the Vancouver Recital Society. Good guess or Good Getz? Leila has created one of the best recital series in North America. With hard work, discipline, enthusiasm, and love. Thanks to her solid judgment and excellent taste, the VRS has presented some of the world’s brightest musical talents. Needless to say, Leila hasn’t done this alone; she’s had the help of her colleagues and her loving family. Many happy returns and may the VRS live on for many more decades!” — Sir András Schiff
