Some of Canada’s finest baritones perform in Meaford this Saturday when Bravura steps onto the Meaford Hall stage March 28.
'Bravura’s' repertoire ranges from classic Broadway and pop, to Italian folk and classical. Seasoned performers all, the men of Bravura thrill with their scorchingly passionate, frequently funny, and always exciting blend of music. Formed in January, 2010, Bravura is comprised of three of our country’s finest leading men from musical theatre, jazz, and opera.
Bravura consists of James Levesque: an enthralling, diverse artist who is equally at home performing in concert, at the opera, or in musical theatre. He has been singing internationally for 15 years, with such esteemed companies as the COC, Calgary Opera, and the Aldeburgh Festival. James’ sonorous baritone is the bright centre that blends Bravura’s rich sound. One of Canada’s most in-demand leading men, George Masswohl has wowed audiences across North America in leading roles with The Stratford and Shaw Festivals, Canadian Stage, Livent, Vancouver’s Arts Club, Halifax’s Neptune Theatre, on Broadway tours and Off-Broadway. George’s bari-tenor range takes Bravura’s repertoire to exciting heights. Curtis Sullivan brings a wealth of experience from the worlds of Broadway musicals and opera. A star of Toronto’s esteemed Opera Atelier, Canadian Stage and the Stratford Festival, Curtis’ bass-baritone gives Bravura a solid base of passion and gravitas.
