Wednesday, June 5 – Holly Chaplin, soprano, Brahm Goldhamer, piano

We welcome Holly Chaplin, a sought-after lyric coloratura soprano with an “almost bell-like upper register”(Opera Canada), in a delightful recital of operatic favourites. Holly has sung major roles in productions of works such as H.M.S. Pinafore, The Magic Flute, and Carmina Burana, and most recently starred as Gilda in Opera York’s Rigoletto. The program she has chosen for us will showcase highlights from Mozart, Obradors, Verdi, Donizetti and the beloved Song to the Moon from Dvořák’s Rusalka.

 

 

Monday, June 10 –  Piano Trio, featuring Megan Chang (piano), Julia Tom (cello) and Clara Yoon (violin)

Megan Chang from the Faculty of Music at the U of T will be joined by her friends Julia Tom and Clara Yoon to entertain us with a varied program that includes Astor Piazzolla’s, an exciting collection of individual tangos, guaranteed to get our feet tapping!
