Hall hosts recital
Soprano Clarisse Tonigussi to perform
Soprano Clarisse Tonigussi will give a performance at a recital at the Milton Community Hall today at 7 p.m.
Tonigussi is completing her master’s degree at the University of Toronto in voice performance and this year is on a recital tour across Canada featuring the music of classical Canadian women composers.
The recital will bring to light an array of Canadian women composers in historical order, beginning with Gena Banscombe (early 1900’s) and ending with a work that is being commissioned for her own voice using text from Anne of Green Gables.
Other composers featured include Jean Coulthard, Mary Gardiner, Jean Ethridge, Ana Sokolovic, Jana Skarecky, Martha Hill Duncan and Melissa Hui.
The program will be about an hour, plus intermission. Admission is $15.
The Milton Community Hall is at 7 New Glasgow Rd. in North Milton.
