Royal Conservatory 2018/19

hampsonpisaroniThe Royal Conservatory has announced its concert programme for 2018/19.  It’s not massively exciting from a classical vocal point of view although there are a few goodies and the odd surprise in the package.  The most exciting is saved for the very end of the season when Thomas Hampson and son-in-law Luca Pisaroni have a recital at Koerner.  That’s on 30th April 2019.  The most surprising is the season opening gala, also at Koerner, on 2nd October 2018 which features Kathleen Battle.  I’ll be honest, I thought she retired years ago.

Other than that it’s Mazzoleni Songmasters and the Glenn Gould School Opera.  The Mazzoleni series is as follows:

  • 11th November 2018 – Joyce El Khoury and Beste Kalender
  • 27th January 2019 – Lucia Cervoni and Michael Colvin
  • 14th April 2019 – Monica Whicher with Judy Loman on harp

All of those should be worth a Sunday afternoon.

As for the GGS it’s pretty much “business as usual”.

  • November 2nd and 3rd 2018 is the GGS fall opera.  That one’s in Mazzoleni with Peter Tiefenbach at the piano.
  • The GGS vocal showcase is at Mazzoleni on 2nd February 2019
  • March 20th and 22nd 2019 is the spring opera; in Koerner with the RCM orchestra

The full lineup is here.
