An evening of love songs

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture presents Hungarian vocalist Noémi Kiss and classical guitarist Rita Deane.

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture  presents Hungarian vocalist Noémi Kiss and classical guitarist Rita Deane in a concert featuring love songs from across the centuries.

The concert will include a wide range of repertoire from early classical to contemporary, including works by Dowland, Sor, Giuliani, Rodrigo, Britten, Villa-Lobos, Sieber, as well as contemporary love songs and folk songs from around the world.

Noémi Kiss is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, whose voice has been described by BBC Music Magazine as “gloriously lyrical over a strikingly wide range.”

With performances in many of Europe’s concert halls, Noémi’s concert engagements take her to many of Europe’s festivals and include appearances in Iceland, Norway and Israel.

Her recent recording of Pergolesi’s Marian Vespers with New College Choir and the Academy of Ancient Music under Edward Higginbottom was nominated for both the Gramophone Award and the Classical Grammy Award.

Rita (Szekely) Deane grew up in Rossland, and studied for many years with Mike Piscitelli of Trail (classical guitar) and with Helen Dahlstrom of Rossland (piano). Rita continued her musical studies at the University of Victoria, and then abroad in Cordoba, Spain, as well as at the International Music Academy in Salzburg, Austria. While completing her Masters degree, she joined the guitar faculty of the Victoria Conservatory of Music.

Rita has served as an examiner and as an adjudicator at various festivals, including the Northwest Guitar Festival, and is one of the founding faculty of the Kaslo Guitar Fest.

 

The duo will be performing at the Rossland Miner’s Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. Ticket are $20, available in advance at Out of the Cellar (Rossland) and at the Charles Bailey Theater box office (Trail).
