A night at the ‘popera’

Audiences are invited to come and hear Vivace’s unique combination of pop and opera, at LCMS on May 25

Langley Community Music School welcomes Vivace to the Rose Gellert Hall on Saturday, May 25, at 7:30 p.m.

This modern combination of four unique and exceptional singers includes Melody Mecredi, LCMS alumna Tiffany Desrosiers, Marc Devigne and DJ Calhoun.

Pianist Marcel Bergmann will also join the group.

“If you enjoy the likes of The Tenors and Il Divo, our ensemble is the latest addition to the classical crossover/popera genre. We are comprised of two ladies and two men, with two opera singers and two pop singers,” said Desrosiers.

“The stirring combination of powerful male voices and emotionally driven female vocals sets our thrilling group apart from all others.”

The evening’s musical choices vary anywhere in style from a new spin on the operatic aria, O sole mio, to the pop driven Adele song, Someone Like You.

It will also include some of the greatest hits of opera, musical and other genres — from Puccini’s beloved Nessun’ dorma to Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.

“LCMS is very proud of their alumni and are happy to support them in their professional careers, and we’re excited to welcome alumnus Tiffany Desrosiers to perform with Vivace,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts at LCMS.

“Our concert series provides a wonderful opportunity for young artists to perform on our stage, and the school enjoys following these artists as they embark on and grow in their careers.”

The Rose Gellert Hall concert season is sponsored by Hub Insurance. This concert is also made possible through a donation from Ledcor.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $16 for students.

Call the box office for tickets at 604-534-2848. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
