Return to Industrial Alliance Pre-Dinner Concerts
Duo Brazil: Soprano Donna Brown & Guitarist Andrew Mah
Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at 5:30 pm • Christ Church Cathedral
Renowned for the floating, angelic quality of her voice, Canada’s Donna Brown quickly became one of the leading sopranos in Europe, where she lived for more than twenty years. A Festival favourite, she returns to Vancouver in the first of two performances that showcase her vocal versatility. Hear Donna again with pianist Philippe Cassard in concert Ariettes Oubliées on August 17th.
In Duo Brazil, she teams with Ottawa guitarist Andrew Mah, who has taken special interest in music of Brazil and the Cape Verde Islands, for a program that ranges from the dreamy sounds of the Bachianas Brasileiras of Villa Lobos to the exuberance of Carnaval season in Rio.
“Donna Brown is a dream of a singer, an impassioned and poetic interpreter.” Le Quotidien, Paris
