Enjoy a beautiful evening of song with this trio of musicians. Soprano Martha Guth has a “thrilling top range, rare breath control and an awesome legato” (Globe and Mail). Baritone Tyler Duncan has “that rare mixture of elegant phrasing and resonant power” (Toronto Star). Pianist Erika Switzer is widely known for her brilliant, expressive, and technically confident playing. Her reputation is growing as the collaborative pianist of choice. Presented by Prairie Debut.

Alessio Bax & Lucille Chung â€“ One Piano Four Hands
NOTE: Change of venue- Westminster United Church
Bax and Chung prove that “Good things come in pairs.” With this duo, the concert becomes a unique experience: a perfect combination and balance of unity of thought and individual personalities, filled with their passion for music and zest for life. “Theirs is a marriage of wondrous colours and dextrous aplomb, subtly balanced to make the musical performance sound as one.” (Music and Arts) Presented by Prairie Debut.
