The RBA Free Concert Series launched on September 18, 2012 with a performance by the talented members of the COC's own Ensemble Studio program, and our free concerts feature more than just opera! From jazz to vocal to dance, we have a variety of artists performing throughout the year. To make your selection easier, here are five must–see free concerts at the RBA this fall.
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 - 12 p.m. - Dave Young Quartet - Aspects of Oscar
Who better to perform a tribute to the legendary Oscar Peterson than his friend and collaborator Dave Young? This performance will feature tracks from Young's Juno-nominated CD, Aspects of Oscar which features familiar gems and lesser-known material. Joining Young are his sidemen Kevin Turcotte, and Frank and Robi Botos. If you dig their sound, the Robi Botos Trio will return to perform at the Free Concert Series on January 9, 2013.
