Ken Lavigne set to entertain Kitimat crowd

The next performance in the Kitimat Concert Association series promises to be a great one.

The next performance in the Kitimat Concert Association series promises to be a great one.

Ken Lavigne is a singer, composer, communicator and consummate entertainer. Currently joined onstage by his band that consists of piano, guitar, bass, drums and violin, Lavigne has charmed his way into the hearts of concert goers across North America with his sincere delivery of ballads, show tunes and operatic classics. It’s easy to see why one New York critic described him as having “a voice of liquid gold”.

Since his Carnegie Hall Debut, Mr. Lavigne has regularly performed with multi-grammy winner David Foster and has had the honour of performing for his Majesty Prince Charles last fall. All the while he has continued to earn accolades with symphonies and orchestras internationally. Despite Lavigne’s recent branching out to cross-over solo concerts, he is still in great demand as an opera performer, not only in traditional roles such as Spoletta in the Pacific Opera Victoria’s 2005 production of Tosca, but also in new and sometimes controversial productions such as Victoria Philharmonic Choir’s 2007 interpretation of Handel’s Samson, presented in a post-war Palestinian setting. His talent is matched only by his ambition and charm.

In his current tour, Lavigne takes his audience on an riveting and enchanting journey, retelling his personal campaign to sing at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops. It’s a unbelievable account of a man who, against all odds found a way to live out his dream of singing on the world’s most prestigious concert stage. Told with spectacular songs and entertaining and hilarious stories, this Canadian tenor embodies the spirit of the underdog – audacity, tenacity, tragedy and ultimately triumph.

His Kitimat concert is at the MET on November 21 at 8:00 PM.
