Montreal native Nadya Blanchette will sing popular cabaret tunes at the next Musical Mornings recital in Coquitlam.
The Nanaimo resident will join the series hosts, pianists Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann, for the revue on Wednesday, April 17 featuring “an eclectic and diverse array” of music from Europe and the United States, Blanchette told The Tri-City News last week.
The trio will also talk about the piece before each performance, titled A Broadway Cabaret.
“It’s a great opportunity to have a conversation about the repertoire and our experiences of performing them,” said the soprano who has worked with Cirque du Soleil, the Vancouver Symphony and CBC Radio, among others, and sang at the state funeral for former prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
All songs for A Broadway Cabaret are sung in English, with compositions from Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers and Hammerstein and George Gershwin.
For tickets to the show at 10:30 a.m. at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam), call the box office at 604-927-6555 or visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca. A coffee reception is at 10 a.m.
