singer in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Hello, and welcome to my 2017-18 season. Enquiries:+1 514 627 4569
I begin with a performance of Italian songs with guitar at the Canadian multi-recital webcast, Mysterious Barricades, helping raise awareness on Suicide Prevention Day.
I then begin the season proper in the role of Nicandro in ''Nicandro e Fileno'', by Paolo Lorenzani, with Le Nouvel Opéra in Montreal, recording the same role with ATMA Classique later in the year.
In 2017-18, I will sing in Joseph Haydn's "Creation" at the prestigious Mondavi Arts Center at the University of California at Davis, with Jeffery Thomas. I will also sing with Maestro Thomas's, American Bach Soloists, in San Francisco in 4 performances of the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610. I am very proud to be part of Le Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montreal, performing music of Nouvelle France at St. John's Smith Square, London, early in 2018. Also on the books are 6 performances as soloist in Mozart's Requiem with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens in Montreal, and there are plans for an appearance at the Toronto Bach Festival singing the music of Heinrich Schutz.
I will record for a musical adaptation of Gertrude Stein's "Short Sentences", and in "historical popular song", I will continue touring with La Nef, (Sea Songs and Shanties, ATMA Classique). Ïn other news from the busy Montreal studio scene, the film "Omega 20-21" Thierry Aolx's anthropocene distopian film, will be released in 2018, featuring my singing prominently.
