Last Chance to Hear the Ensemble Studio

This has been an excellent season for the Ensemble Studio, with highlights including a fully-staged performance of The Magic Flute in February, a trip to the (very, very) far north with the Xstrata Ensemble Studio School Tour, and a chance to shine in the Christina and Louis Quilico Awards in vocal competition. 

Today's Free Concert presented by National Bank is the last opportunity to see all the current members of the Ensemble Studio singing together. Three of its members are graduating from the program this year and moving on to new adventures (the departing members will get a concert of their own on May 26), and some exciting new singers will be arriving for the 2011/2012 season. 

The concert, titled Serenata Italiana, will feature an all-Italian program that includes both arias and art songs. We hope you'll join us in congratulating the Ensemble Studio on a very successful year.
