We all have a soundtrack to our life. It brings back the years when a song spoke to something in our young hearts, or moved our feet at dances. It brings back the best of our early years, our hopes and wishes, and even the ones that got away. It leaves a smile on our faces and a lift in our hearts. Here’s to Life will feature Patricia Duval and music from the 1950s to the 1970s.

Joining Patricia are special guest vocalist Lorraine Foster, pianist Bill Costin, bassist Tim Stacey and drummer Buff Allen.

Tickets $25, or $20 seniors/students

Vivaldi Chamber Choir presents:
Sullivan! - With and Without Gilbert

Join us as for a fascinating presentation of the two sides of Sir Arthur Sullivan’s genius. Known mainly for his catchy tunes in the comic Savoy operas, Sullivan was also a highly-regarded composer of serious music. Artistic Director, Edette Gagné, will lead choir, soloists and orchestra in well-known selections from Pirates, Pinafore and Mikado; and later, the orchestra will perform the Overture di Ballo and then be joined by the choir for the magnificent Festival Te Deum.

Featuring: Olesia Shewchuk, soprano; Katrina Goh, soprano; Arne Larsen, baritone; Tony Roper, bass; Barry Yamanouchi, piano; and chamber orchestra

To round out the afternoon, the audience is invited to participate in a SILENT AUCTION which will be held before the concert starting at 2:00pm and during the intermission, to raise funds for the purchase of choral risers.
