En­core for top artists

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

EN­CORE Con­certs is bring­ing two in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned artists to per­form in Moss­man tonight for a great night of mu­sic just in time for Mother’s Day.

Af­ter her re­cent Ital­ian tour of Porgy and Bess, in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed opera diva - and now Craiglie res­i­dent - Al­teouise de Vaughn makes her much an­tic­i­pated come­back.

Be­sides hav­ing sung lead­ing roles in Opera Houses in Europe and the USA, Al­teouise is highly re­garded as a singer of Or­a­to­rio and Spir­i­tu­als.

Re­cently Opera Australia of­fered Al­teouise a ma­jor role in Verdi’s Il Trova­tore at Syd­ney Opera House later in the year, a role she has sung in New York, San Fran­cisco, New Or­leans, Ger­many and Italy.

One of her star­ring roles is Car­men, which she has sung to great ac­claim in Ger­many, Italy and USA and Al­teouise has in­cluded some of its arias in her forth­com­ing pro­gram.

In ad­di­tion to this, Al­teouise will sing a bracket of Spir­i­tu­als in­clud­ing her unique ren­di­tion of Amaz­ing Graze.

Much loved con­cert pi­anist Yev­gen Ukhanov needs no fur­ther in­tro­duc­tion and can be proudly re­ferred to as our own “res­i­dent con­cert pi­anist” since he first de­lighted our au­di­ences in 2000 as a ma­jor prize win­ner of the Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional Pi­ano Com­pe­ti­tion.

Yev­gen has since won the ad­mi­ra­tion of au­di­ences around the world with his bril­liant tech­nique and pro­found mu­si­cian­ship and has brought many “firsts” to the Far North. Ukraine-born Yev­gen will per­form the same reper­toire which he re­cently per­formed in Gov­ern­ment House to great ac­claim, which in­cludes the “grand” ro­man­tic sec­ond sonata by Rach­mani­nov, a work rarely per­formed due to its tech­ni­cal de­mands.

His pro­gram also in­cludes works by Chopin.

The con­cert will be held at St Au­gus­tine’s Church in Moss­man tonight at 6.30pm. Tick­ets are $25 adults, $20 pen­sion­ers or $10 youths and are avail­able at the door or by call­ing Her­man Soe­nario on 4093 9018.
