Renowned Canadian tenor, Colin Ainsworth has “thrilled audiences with remarkable power and expressivity” all over the world. Opera Kelowna is excited to welcome back to the Okanagan Mr. Ainsworth, with collaborative pianist Laura Lowen, for “Transformations” – a solo vocal recital of poignant and lighthearted music. Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Hymns for Tenor and Jeffrey Ryan’s Length of a Day take listeners on a soul searching journey while Louis Andriessen’s “Beatles Songs” and Peter Tiefenbach’s humorous “Songs from my Cupboard” will lift our spirits with quirky humour.
Please join us for a stunning evening of live singing with one of Canada’s musical treasures.
We are pleased to offer this program in the North, Central, and South Okanagan.
Also a prolific concert singer, Mr. Ainsworth’s vast concert and recital repertoire includes Bach’s Mass in B Minor and St. John’s Passion, Handel’s Messiah, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Requiem, Schubert’s Dichterliebe and Janácek’s Diary of One Who Vanished. He has appeared with the symphony orchestras in Calgary, Cincinnati, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and with leading baroque ensembles including Ensemble Pygmalion, , Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra of San Francisco, Music of the Baroque in Chicago, Mercury Baroque in Houston, Les Violons du Roy in Montreal, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra in Toronto, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and the Grand Philharmonic Choir. He has also appeared at the Lanaudiere, Montreal Baroque, Elora and the Aldeburgh Connection festivals, and has toured throughout Germany.
