On To Europe II: Gala Fundraising Event
In preparation for our tour to Finland and to Spain where the Winnipeg Singers will attend the Golden Voices of Barcelona International Choral Festival and Contest, we kick off this season with a gala fundraising event.
Featuring acclaimed soprano Lara Ciekiewicz.
Whether being hailed as “mesmerizing” (Classical Voice of North Carolina), “magnificently bell-toned” (Capital Critics Circle), or “a clear standout” (San Francisco Classical Voice), soprano Lara Ciekiewicz is making her mark as a dynamic singing-actress.
This season Lara debuts with Opera Kelowna as Micaëla in Carmen, as well as with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. She rejoins the Victoria Symphony for their salute to Bernstein. Returning to Opera on the Avalon, she reprises her role as May in Ours. She will also take on the saucy Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus for Toronto Operetta Theatre.
Recent credits: Jenůfa (Jenůfa); Tatiana (Eugene Onegin); Cinderella (Into the Woods); Countess (Le nozze di Figaro); Maria (The Sound of Music); May (Ours); Liù (Turandot); Micaëla (Carmen); Musetta (La Bohème); and Nellie Forbush (South Pacific).
We hope you will join us in support of the choir’s fundraising efforts towards this tour.
Great music, appetizers, silent auction and full bar!
