The Brantford Music Club is celebrating the beginning of their 117th season with “The Super Soprano” featuring Brantford’s Julia Surette at the Sanderson Centre on Friday, October 14.
“Julia has prepared a fantastical, spooky concert for the Halloween season,” the club said. “The show will feature art song and opera arias that explore the supernatural. It will include the passionate, mystical and bizarre portrayed through tragedies, fairy tales, cabarets and Shakespearean works.”
Surette is an award-winning Canadian-American soprano recognized for her notable range, captivating sound and authentic stage presence. She made her professional debut at the Hampstead Garden Opera (HGO), London UK in May 2022 performing the role of Belinda in Dido and Aeneas.
She recently graduated with her Masters from the Royal Academy of Music, London, England. She studied under the tutelage of British Bass, Giles Underwood and is now pursuing international classical Opera and Concert opportunities.
Surette will be accompanied by Vlad Soloviev on the piano for the concert.
The performance marks the beginning of the Brantford Music Club’s 2022-2023 season, titled the Canadian Artists Series.
The Elmer Iseler Singers take the stage on Sunday, November 20, the Young Artists’ Recital featuring three performers is scheduled for Friday, February 17, and the Quartetto Gelato will close the series on Tuesday, April 4.
The Brantford Music Club is one of Canada’s oldest music clubs, established in 1902.
Tickets for this season’s performances are available through the Sanderson Centre website and at the box office.
