Tenor Thomas Lamont and pianist Roger Parton

A recital in a small setting with time to enjoy some tea and treats, socializing, meeting the artist, and to talk about opera. Salon Socials will be once per month on a Sunday afternoon or Thursday evening.

Thomas Lamont is an up and coming tenor from New Westminster. He delights in performing across the lower mainland in a variety of styles including opera, jazz, and musical theatre. Some of his recent engagements include Almaviva in Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia with Burnaby Lyric Opera, soloist for Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri with Early Music Vancouver, Tamino in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte with UBC Opera, soloist for Handel’s Messiah with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra, and soloist for J.S Bach’s St. John’s Passion with the UBC Symphony Orchestra. Thomas is looking forward to performing in the ensemble for Vancouver Opera’s production of Rossini’s La Cenerentola, running from April 27th until May 12th. Currently Thomas is completing a Bachelor’s of Opera Performance at the University of British Columbia studying under lyric baritone Dale Throness.

Come join our Community Opera Chorus! There’s no experience necessary and no membership fee. We are building a chorus from the ground up! We will help you with group breathing and singing exercises, movement and score reading. It’s like choir, but eventually you’ll be in costume and acting as well as singing! If you love to sing and to be part of a group come join us! Saturdays 11am-12pm at the Oak Park Fieldhouse on Fremlin Street. To register email: operaopulenza@gmail.com with “Community Opera Chorus” in the subject line.
