The Emily Carr ProjectTHE EMILY CARR PROJECT

EXPLORE THE LUSH WORLD OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF THE ICONIC CANADIAN ARTIST, INTERPRETED BY FIRST NATIONS MEZZO-SOPRANO MARION NEWMAN

 

First Nations mezzo soprano Marion Newman brings her rich heritage, beautiful voice and innate musicality to this show highlighting the fascinating life of Canadian artist Emily Carr.

 

With readings from Klee Wyck, explore the lush world of British Columbia, as seen through the eyes of this iconic artist.

 

Known for her range of repertoire, from Vivaldi to operatic roles Carmen and Rosina, as well as her interpretation of contemporary works, Marion brings her “beautiful, velvety voice... agile technique” and  “breadth of vocal colours” to this intimate concert with piano and drum, which draws on her recent performances of “Singing the Earth” (Anna Höstman), “Thunderbird” (Dustin Peters), Tobin Stokes' “Klee Wyck”, and Marion’s own composition, "Kinanu".

THE STAR OF ROBBIE BURNS

The Star of Robbie BurnsCELEBRATE THE LIFE AND POETRY OF SCOTLAND’S POET OF THE PEOPLE, ROBERT BURNS, PLUS A TRIBUTE TO BRIGADOON, WITH RENOWNED CANADIAN ACTOR ANDREW GILLIES AS YOUR HOST

 

In the first half of this story-telling show, explore Burns' world through word and song.  Hear his famous “Comin' thro' the Rye”, “Ye Banks and Braes”, “Sweet Afton”, and “My love is like a Red, Red Rose”, with outstanding singers from the Domoney Artists roster.

 

After intermission (with tea and shortbread, or whisky tasting)  enjoy the delightful Broadway classic Brigadoon, following the tale of two Americans who stumble upon the mythical village of Brigadoon in the misty Scottish highlands.  Songs include “Almost like Being in Love”, “The Heather on the Hill”, “Go Home to bonnie Jean”, and more.

 

The show closes with audience joining in to sing “Auld Lang Syne”. Perfect for fans of Outlander, the historical time-travel novel set in Scotland!

VIVA ESPAÑA

Viva EspanaJOIN ACCLAIMED CANADIAN MEZZO SOPRANO MARIA SOULIS AND GUITARIST WILLIAM BEAUVAIS ON A SIZZLING TOUR FROM ANATOLIA (TURKEY AND GREECE) TO SPAIN, FEATURING FOLK SONGS ARRANGED BY DE FALLA.

 

Maria's voice has been described by European critics as “warm and powerful”, “gorgeous, dusky-toned”, and “full of warmth and drama” with “a ruby-red timbre”.

Maria also draws on her Greek heritage, singing Garcia Lorca texts translated and set to music by Greece's foremost composer, Mikis Theodorakis, of Zorba the Greek fame. These songs lend

themselves beautifully to voice and guitar. Maria's warm and friendly stage presence will draw in your audience – the show is spiced up with violin and castanets (plus a visit by that  famous Spanish gypsy, Carmen!).
