Chapel, Court and Countryside Concert Series presents: “Mad for Opera”

Opera enthusiasts will delight in an upcoming performance of Trinity Western University’s first Chapel, Court and Countryside performance of the New Year. The concert on February 2, 2002, at 2:30 p.m. in the Calvin B. Hanson chapel will feature an amusing look at opera madness by Menotti, Donezetti and Bellini.

“We are truly honoured to have these soloists,” says Ron Moir, TWU Music Director.
“It will be an afternoon of laughter and lunacy, as we take a look at how operant composers have used insanity and madness, to express humour and frivolity.”

Featured soloists include Dolores Scott soprano soloist and Joanne Summer Miller as the piano accompanist.

Date: Sunday, February 2, 2002

Time: 2:30pm

Place: Calvin B. Hanson Chapel, Trinity Western University, 7600 Glover Road, Langley

Her roles have included Musetta in “La Boheme,” Josephine in “H.M.S. Pinafore,” Pamina in the “Magic Flute” and Laetititia in the “Old Maid and the Thief.”

Both women are members of the “3 Divas,” a local opera group which performs in Greater Vancouver and abroad.
