Creston Concert Society is pleased to present its next performance in its 2017-2018 season

Creston Concert Society is pleased to present its next performance in its 2017-2018 season. You’ve heard the tenors, now it’s time for the baritones: Bravura performs Sunday, November 5th at 3:00 p.m. at the Prince Charles Theatre. Formed in January, 2010, Bravura is comprised of three of our country’s finest leading men from musical theatre, jazz, and opera.

James Levesque completed his formal education at the University of Toronto Opera Division, and since then has been in high demand. James is an enthralling, diverse artist who is equally at home performing in concert, at the opera, or in musical theatre. He has been singing internationally for 15 years, with such esteemed companies as the Canadian Opera Company, Calgary Opera, and the Aldeburgh Festival. James’ sonorous baritone is the bright centre that blends Bravura’s rich sound.

One of Canada’s most in -demand leading men, George Masswohl has wowed audiences across North America in leading roles including Seussical at Young People’s Theatre, Fiddler On The Roof at Stratford and, at Canadian Stage, in the title role in Sweeney Todd. He’s also performed with The Shaw Festivals, Livent, Vancouver’s Arts Club, Halifax’s Neptune Theatre, on Broadway tours and Off-Broadway, and as Matthew Cuthbert in the Charlottetown Festival 2017’s Anne of Green Gables—The Musical. George’s bari-tenor range takes Bravura’s repertoire to exciting heights.

Curtis Sullivan brings a wealth of experience from the worlds of Broadway musicals and opera. A suave baritone sound has assured Curtis Sullivan of success in a variety of musical idioms. On the opera stage, he starred as Count Almaviva in Opera Atelier’s The Marriage of Figaro in Toronto and Tokyo. For the Stratford Festival, he was cast as Giuseppe in The Gondoliers, directed by Brian Macdonald. Sondheim’s innovative music theatre work, Passion, was his assignment at the Canadian Stage in Toronto where he starred as the brooding romantic hero, Giorgio. In another change of pace, the Banff Centre alumnus appeared in the Classical Kids production of Tchaikovsky Discovers America. Curtis’ bass-baritone gives Bravura a solid base of passion and gravitas.

Bravura’s repertoire ranges from classic Broadway and pop, to Italian folk and classical. Seasoned performers all, the men of Bravura thrill with their scorchingly passionate, frequently funny, and always exciting blend of Canada’s finest baritone voices.

Tickets for Bravura are $22 in advance for adults, $10 for youth, available at Black Bear Books, Kingfisher Books and Fly in the Fibre, or $25 adult $12 youth at the door. Show starts at 3:00 p.m. at the Prince Charles Theatre on November 5th.
