Jeunes Ambassadeurs lyriques support program: Bavarian Evening and Gala concert for aspiring singers from Quebec and Canada

25.10.2017



It's an annual tradition for supporters of the young generation of opera singers in Quebec: the "Jeunes Ambassadeurs lyriques" grant program that was created by Théâtre Lyrichorégra 20, and its annual concert series for the Montreal audience to measure the savoir-faire of local talents in a diverse repertoire.

Each year anew for the last 11 years, the German Song Evening under Bavarian patronage has been the occasion for an exploration of the German-speaking repertoire, through Lieder and opera arias alike. The State of Bavaria Office Quebec proudly supports this program: in April 2017, the Regensburg opera director, Mr. Jens Neundorff von Enzberg, took part in the pre-selection auditions. A young soprano who just finished her studies in Munich, Ms. Samantha Gaul, will sing in Montreal as German guest artist. In February 2017, the Quebec soprano Suzanne Taffot had been offered a grant to pursue an internship in Munich.

The Bavarian Evening will take place on Friday, November 17, 2017, starting at 6:30 pm, at Marie-Stéphane concert hall in École de musique Vincent d’Indy (682 chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine, Outremont). Entrance & parking are free of charge.

The Gala concert, which traditionally closes the week, is set on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 2:30 pm at Pierre-Mercure concert hall (300, boulevard de Maisonneuve Est, Montréal). Tickets can be purchased here: http://opmem.org/archives/event/gala-jal-2017#billet
