St. Mike’s features Arts Songs and Heart Songs
A noted Vancouver Island pianist and composer. A soprano from Montreal. And some of Victoria's best teenage voice.
That is the recipe for Art Songs and Heart Songs, the latest installment of the St. Michael's Presents concert series in Chemainus.
Soprano, Kerry-Anne Kutz and pianist Nicholas Fairbank will be joined by members of the Viva Youth Choirs Senior Ensemble from Victoria.
Kutz performs a wide range of styles from pop, folk and jazz to classical music. She was the first woman in Canada chosen to be a member of the RCMP Band based in Ottawa.
Fairbank is a composer, collaborative pianist, harpsichordist and organist, conductor, adjudicator, clinician, teacher and singing baritone in the vocal ensemble Hexaphone.
The Viva Youth Choir senior ensemble is an auditioned group of a dozen singers ages 12-17 with an eclectic repertoire of classical, folk and world music.
The Nov. 18 show starts at 2 p.m. at St. Michael's Church, Chemainus. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at Valley Vines to Wines (Mill Bay), Ten Old Books (Duncan), Ocean Soul Book Caffé (Crofton), Salamander Books (Ladysmith), Little Town Market Co. (Chemainus), the Chemainus Festival Inn or by calling 250-748-8383.
