Touring and live were her commanders so to speak as she continues to share her experiences both as a working musician/vocalist, and voice/jazz theory instructor.

Corinne lent her singing talents to two of the award-winning GTA's top 10 jingles of all time, 'Pizza Pizza and African Lion Safari' in the greater Hamilton/Toronto area in the 80's.
