Antonio Lauro Venezuelan Waltzes for Guitar Charles Lambert Romantic Creole music from New Orleans Visit our website at: www Operatic voices. We have not only big shows this month (see Music Theatre Spotlight on page 23) but also a wealth of operatic performers in recital: American mezzo-soprano, Susan Graham, will give a (non-operatic) recital on April 2 at Roy Thomson Hall and Placido Domingo will be at the Air Canada Centre on April 28. There will be three more modest operatic recitals in April, the first by baritone, David Varjabet and soprano, Marina Shemesh at the Ford Centre Studio Theatre on April 8. The second, the University Settlement House Opera Aria Evening, will be at St. George the Martyr Church on April 28 - it was at the equivalent concert four or five years ago .that I first heard baritone, James Westman, who now appears destined for a splendid singing career. Who knows, there may be another James Westman in this year's concert. The third is two singers, Kelly Campbell and Bronwen Low, who will be performing "loved solo and duet repertoire spanning from Monteverdi to Mozart to Gershwin and Guys and Dolls" at St. George's United Church on April 29. There will also be three "best of Broadway" recitals: soprano, Dilys Haner, at Redeemer Lutheran Church on April 8, part of the High Park Recital series; Opera Encore" at the Heliconian Hall on April 12; and "An Evening with Lerner, Loesser and Loewe" at Walton United Church in Oakville on April 30. Sinfonias. The area is now blessed with three sinfonias: Sinfonia Toronto, Sinfonia Mississauga and the Toronto Sinfonia of Nations. The first two are string orchestras, conducted respectively by Nurhan Arman and by John Barnum, that present a concert series each year. The third is a very good student orchestra, assembled from time to time by advanced conducting student, until last year at U. of T. but now at the U niversity of Michigan, Mehdi Javanfar. Sinfonia Toronto's next concert April 8 features conductor Nurhan Arman's son, Stepan, as guest violin soloist. Only 20 years old, the younger Arman has appeared as a soloist with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and I Musici de Montreal among others. He will perform Wieniawski's Fantasie Brillante on Themes from Gounod's Faust, which he has already recorded with I Musici de Montreal. Sinfonia Mississauga with guitar soloist, Alvin Tung, performs in its usual venue, the Royal Ban)
