Montreal Chamber Orchestra to Honour Luciano PavarottiPosted by Joan McGuigan
The Montreal Chamber Orchestra will mark the first anniversary of Luciano Pavarotti's death with a concert entitled “Hommage à Pavarotti” that will take place on Thursday, July 17th at Parc Jean-Drapeau (Scène Loto-Québec) starting at 8 p.m.
The concert forms part of a month-long program called “Les Weekends du monde” which celebrates Montreal’s diverse cultural heritage through a series of fun and colourful activities, all of which take place at the historic and beautiful Parc Jean-Drapeau in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. The concert provides the perfect opportunity to hear much loved opera arias on a summer evening in a splendid park-like setting.
For “Hommage à Pavarotti”, the Montreal Chamber Orchestra will be conducted by artistic director Maestra Wanda Kaluzny and the concert will be hosted by renowned tenor Manrico Tedeschi. Mr Tedeschi was a winner of the Pavarotti Voice Competition and alternated with the great tenor at La Scala. He will animate the evening, recounting personal anecdotes about Pavarotti. Internationally acclaimed soprano Makiko Awazu and tenor Francesco Verrecchia will join Manrico Tedeschi to perform 11 well-known arias made familiar to the world by Luciano Pavarotti. They will close with the ever popular Nessun Dorma, which was the last piece that Pavarotti sang in concert.
With this concert, the Montreal Chamber Orchestra continues its tradition of making music accessible to Montrealers of all cultures and from all parts of the city. The Orchestra, which will celebrate its 35th anniversary next season, will do a repeat performance of this concert on August 9th at 7 p.m. in Parc Georges-St-Pierre in Notre Dame de Grace, marking the opening of Montreal’s Italian Week. Both concerts are free and open to the public and each holds the promise of a delightful summer evening filled with spectacular music.
