While the snow blows and winter tightens its icy grip, we look ahead to exciting performances, dreaming of springtime.
Giles Tomkins debuts the role of Raimondo in Lucia di Lammermoor with Pacific Opera Victoria this month - how lucky to be in that green and gorgeous city by the sea, where snowdrops and camellias are now blooming!
Benjamin Covey is a guest soloist with Grand Philharmonic Choir in "Grant us Peace", featuring Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass and John Estacio's powerful The Houses stand not Far Apart.
Responding to an urgent situation, Scott Belluz stepped in at the VERY last minute and gave three impressive performances of PDQ Bach's zany cantata for "bargain-countertenor," Iphigenia in Brooklyn, with Kitchener Waterloo Symphony, to great acclaim (and guffaws).
Later in February, Daniel Lichti moves from lieder to opera, singing the role of Simone in Puccini's comic gem, Gianni Schichhi, with the talented opera students at Wilfrid Laurier University.
Closing and Openings: Congratulations to Prix Opus winners Maude Brunet and Dion Mazerolle who have now finished their performances of Chabrier's charming L'Etoile and returned from snowy Chicoutimi. Francois Racine's production of L'Etoile opens at L'universite de Montreal on February 26.

Spiritus Chamber Choir provides proud evening of Canadian choral music
"...verses were sung by a male trio consisting of counter-tenor Daniel Cabena, Oliver Munar, tenor, and Roderick Bryce, baritone. All three sang with beautifully clear, expressive voices, blending beautifully in the ensemble writing and also authoritative and persuasive in the solo passages."
"Mezzo-soprano Maude Brunet effectively conveys Lazuli’s vivacity, while baritone Dion Mazerolle and soprano Pascale Beaudin make a delightfully mismatched couple in the roles of the cantankerous ambassador and his attention-deprived wife. The tone is uninhibited, sometimes even naughty, which clearly pleased the audience."
The next generation... Who are these two wee ones?
Watch for the answer in next month's Director's Notes!
