...for snow, eggnog, holly, mulled wine, gingerbread, and of course, music! On this wintry day, I send you greetings for a warm and wonderful Christmas.
As 2015 approaches, Domoney Artists are very busy on stages from Vancouver to Montreal, in performances of seasonal favourites. Leslie Dala conducts Vancouver performances of Messiah and Nutcracker ballet, Benjamin Covey is a guest soloist in Messiah with Cellar Singers in Bracebridge and Orillia, Marion Newman is a guest soloist in Messiah with Victoria Symphony.
Tenor Adam Fisher debuts with National Arts Centre in their Messiah, and joins Maria Soulis and Dion Mazerolle for Aradia Ensemble's popular Dublin Messiah in Toronto.
In Victoria, Adam Fisher rings in the New Year with Victoria Symphony in their annual "Viennese New Year Gala", Giles Tomkins goes for laughs in the title role of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado with Toronto Operetta Theatre and soon Maude Brunet and Dion Mazerolle will be in rehearsal for Chabrier's charming L'Etoile with Societe d'art Lyrique de Royaume in Chicoutimi, Quebec.
Countertenor Scott Belluz will be warding off winter in his debut with Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony's January 16 & 17 performances of Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream. Here is Scott singing Oberon's haunting aria "Welcome, wanderer" from Benjamin Britten's opera. Listen Now
