Mezzo-soprano Andrea Ludwig and the Togni Trio premiere Isis and Osiris at Heliconian Hall, 7:30 p.m.
New Canadian opera is alive and well and being premiered at this intimate Yorkville venue by some very talented people. Isis and Osiris composer Peter Togni leads the Voicebox/Opera in Concert-sponsored concert presentation which is raising money for Ariaworks. The Egyptian-themed story’s libretto is by Toronto poet Sharon Singer. The event also marks the official release of a new album of creations by Togni. Tickets are $35 in advance (416-461-0750) or $40 at the door.
Around this time of year we start to see a number of arts presenters make the transition between the 2013/14 and the 2014/15 seasons. No doubt we will be seeing more of these as the spring thaw progresses, but this week we find events for The Toronto Consort, and Music Toronto, and The Larkin Singers, U of T, Glenn Gould School, Gaudeamus Muzieweek, Canadian Opera Company and Khatia Buniatishvili.
