Montreal Chamber Orchestra Pavarotti Concert

Montreal Chamber Orchestra to Honour Luciano Pavarotti

The Montreal Chamber Orchestra will mark the first anniversary of Luciano Pavarotti's death with a concert entitled "Hommage Pavarotti" that will take place on Saturday, August 9th at 7 p.m. in Parc Georges-St-Pierre in Notre Dame de Grace, at the corner of Oxford Ave and Upper Lachine Road. The concert, which is the opening event in Montreal's Italian Week, provides the perfect opportunity to hear much loved opera arias on a summer evening in a splendid outdoor setting.

For "Hommage 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 (including E lucevan le stelle and O sole mio) 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, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, continues its tradition of making music accessible to Montrealers of all cultures and from all parts of the city. The concert is free and open to the public and holds the promise of a delightful summer evening filled with spectacular music.

Concert goers are advised to bring a chair.
