Marie-Josee Lord – Soprano
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2015 ~ 8:00 PM
Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre
Presented by Prairie Debut on Friday, Oct. 2 Marie-Josée Lord, soprano with Uliana Drugova, violin and Dominic Boulianne, piano will grace the Lougheed Centre stage. As a trio, they present Jambalaya- a spicy collection of audience favourites. With her own personal style, voice, charisma and choice of repertoire, Ms. Lord delivers a gourmet recital where classical and popular pieces are tastefully entwined. Gershwin, Verdi, Bernstein, Dvorák, Bizet, and many other composers make up this special program that simmers ever so naturally. The result is so flavourful that you will be asking for seconds!
Marie-Josée Lord captivates audiences with her irresistible personality, generosity and passion for lyric art. Known as a “warm, melodious and emotionally generous soprano,” (The Montreal Gazette) Marie-Josée Lord is an original voice. She has received many prestigious awards including Prix d’Excellence de la Culture, awarded by the Fondation de l’Opéra de Québec and was selected to represent Canada at the Cardiff Singer of the World competition. Last season, she sang Violetta in La traviata (Verdi) in Würtzburg, Germany as well as Serena in Porgy and Bess (Gershwin) for five sold out performances at l’Opéra de Montréal. Her first solo CD, with Orchestre Métropolitain, won a 2011 Félix award and received a JUNO nomination. She is a sought-after performer for opera, recitals and with many orchestras. Her sound is described by Wholenote Magazine as “the voices of Jessye Norman and Renée Fleming, with a dash of Maureen Forrester, you just might create something akin to Lord’s apparatus”. This powerhouse soprano will be performing with violinist, Uliana Drugova and pianist, Dominic Boulianne, both exceptional musicians in their own right.
