First came the Three Tenors. Then came Il Volo. And now, premiering in Montreal, is the Canadian group Lyrico. The ensemble is a classical crossover trio comprised of Marco Bocchicchio, Sam Champagne, and Matthew Adam. Together, they bring classically-trained voices to beautiful melodies, from opera to pop.
Backed by 46 musicians of the FILMharmonique Orchestra and a 40-piece choir, Lyrico delivers an exciting program including both well-known Italian classics, crossover hits, and Christmas favorites. Selections include Brindisi, The Prayer, O Holy Night and many more.
The Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Francis Choinière, is also set to perform the overture from opera’s enduring classic, La Traviata, and the Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana. A rousing performance is guaranteed!
