The soprano Marie-Josée Lord will be on the Capitol Theatre stage Saturday January 14, at 8 pm to present the concert Jambalaya. Tickets are currently on sale in the Greater Moncton ticketing Network.
With her personal style, her voice, her presence, and her choice of repertoire, soprano Marie-Josée Lord delivers a gourmet recital where classical and popular music are gently entwined. Gordon Lightfoot, Verdi, Lama, Bizet, Joni Mitchell, and many other composers make up this special program that flows ever so naturally. The occasional comments will spice things up. The result is so flavourful that you will be asking for seconds!
An irresistible artist
In 2005, Marie-Josée Lord was the recipient of the Prix d’Excellence de la Culture, awarded by the Fondation de l’Opéra de Québec, and was selected to represent Canada at the Cardiff Singer of the World competition. She won the Public Prize at the Canadian Lyric Fund Competition, and received the Raoul-Jobin Prize in 1998. Her first solo album, which was recorded with the Orchestre Métropolitain under the baton of Giuseppe Pietraroia, won Marie-Josée Lord a Félix – Quebec’s equivalent of a Juno – in the category Album of the year — classical vocal in 2011. Released on the ATMA Classic label in November 2010, the album has been a great success, with over 25,000 copies sold to date.
