In Memoriam: Suzanne Gouvernet

Suzanne was well-known in Rochester for her generous patronage of many arts organizations and her dedication to our community’s health and vitality. She was the best kind of patron, showing up to everything, making connections, introducing other people to the arts groups and events she supported. She came to a Pegasus concert and discovered she liked early music. One day she said to me, “Let’s do a baroque opera!”, propelling us into a new facet of our mission. We will miss her vibrancy, her keen perceptions, and her energy for the things she loved. Pegasus was lucky to have known her.
–Deborah Fox
