If you like musical theatre, opera or the deep-throated sound of leading men, there’s still time to treat yourself this week.
Bravura, a trio of Canada’s finest baritones, performs Thursday at the Osoyoos Secondary School Theatre.
The first note drops at 7:30 p.m.
Formed in January, 2010, Bravura is comprised of three of Canada’s finest leading men from the musical theatre, jazz, and operatic stages.
The trio includes James Levesque, who has sang internationally for 15 years with such esteemed companies as the COC, Calgary Opera, and the Aldeburgh Festival; George Masswohl, who has leading roles with The Stratford and Shaw Festivals, on Broadway tours and Off-Broadway to his credit; and, Curtis Sullivan, who brings a wealth of experience from the worlds of Broadway musicals and opera.
James is the “sonorous baritone” who provides the “bright centre that blends Bravura’s rich sound.” George takes the trio to exciting heights with his bari-tenor range. Curtis’ bass-baritone gives Bravura a solid base of passion and gravitas.
Combined, their repertoire ranges from classic Broadway and pop, to Italian folk and classical.
Their performance is described as “scorchingly passionate, frequently funny, and always (an) exciting blend of Canada’s finest baritone voices.”
