A Countertenor at the Opera in support of the Halifax Summer Opera Festival; The Music Room

An intimate evening with one of Canada's finest countertenors, Andrew Pickett, as he sings some of his favourite operatic repertoire from Baroque to contemporary.

Countertenor Andrew Pickett is well known to Nova Scotia audiences for his rare and specialized voice. This month, music lovers will have an opportunity to hear him perform beautiful ultra-high male arias in “A Countertenor at the Opera” at the Music Room on February 5, in a benefit concert for the Halifax Summer Opera Festival.

Accompanied by collaborative pianist Lynette Wahlstrom, Pickett will take the audience on a journey through four centuries of opera, from the early days of the castrati superstars to contemporary works written for countertenor. The programme will feature works by composers such as Purcell, Handel, Monteverdi, Mozart, Gluck, Benjamin Britten, Jonathan Dove, and Canadian composer Elizabeth Raum.

The recital will take place Friday, February 26, 7:30 pm at The Music Room, 6181 Lady Hammond Road, Halifax. Tickets are $30 and are available online through Ticket Halifax or at the door. Seating is very limited!

All proceeds go toward scholarships to allow young performers to attend the Halifax Summer Opera Festival.
