Hear a little opera, change some lives

Hear a little opera, change some lives

Jenna Simeonov

This Friday, October 23rd, at Heliconian Hall, “Duelling Divas” Kathleen Promane, mezzo-soprano, and Allison Arends, soprano, present a concert full of arias and duets. Pianist Maika’i Nash joins the two ladies, who will be looking very bejeweled indeed with accessories by designer Catherine Sequalino-Poitier. The concert is at 7:30pm at Heliconian Hall; tickets are $25 at the door and $20 in advance, available by email phone (647-833-5400).

What’s notable about this concert comes afterwards; along with a reception, Allison and Kathleen will be joined by tenor Paul Williamson, to talk about the three singers’ Mini Mozarts Summer Camp initiative. The camp offers music education (and fun times, of course) to underprivileged kids in Kingston, Jamaica. It’s a great thing to do, and we’ll be talking more about Mini Mozarts in the near future.

For now, get to know some of these singers in concert on Friday night. For details and tickets, follow the box office links below.
