A BLACK BOX PASTICHE IN OPERA AND SONG

Celebrating Dalhousie's 200th anniversary, Dal Opera presents a humourous romp ranging from familiar operatic tunes to selections from the Dalhousie Song Book, with text and music chosen and arranged by Peter Tiefenbach, in collaboration with Marcia Swanston. Pianist Greg Myra leads voice students and their instrumental colleagues in a re-telling of the story of Dalhousie. We begin with the founder, Sir George Ramsay, and move through 200 years of successes (with a few roadblocks), leading to the formation of the Fountain School of Performing Arts, a world-class concert hall ... and beyond!
