The Kitimat Concert Association presents


The Kitimat Concert Association is pleased to present Vivace in concert on Friday, January 17 at the Mount Elizabeth Theatre starting at 8:00 p.m.

Vivace (an Italian music term for playing music in a lively and brisk manner) is a sophisticated and thrilling combination of four exceptional pop musicians and two classical singers. Together these six artists create an experience that you don’t want to miss.

Based primarily out of Vancouver, Vivace started merging their talents in 2010, performing at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. Since then, they have gone on to tour extensively throughout Canada and the U.S., captivating audiences everywhere they go.

Vivace’s stirring combination of male and female voices creates a sound that is exclusively their own, setting them apart in the classisal-crossover pantheon. With a rich and diverse repertoire ranging from pop songs, to opera arias, to their own self-written material. Vivace undoubtedly puts a fresh spin on both classical and contemporary music.


Soprano Tiffany Desrosiers received her Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of BC, with a major in Vocal Performance. Tiffany has the unique ability to sing both pop and classical styles.

On three separate occasions, Tiffany won the BC Provincials and later went on to represent the province at the Nationals in New Brunswick.

Tiffany made her presence known to thousands when she was hand-picked to record and perform the 2010 BC Summer Games Ceremonies theme song. Tiffany’s astounding roster of accolades includes special guest performances with 3-time Juno award-winning country music singer/songwriter Jim Witter in the Spring of 2017 for his “Best of 70s and 80s Tour,” and ongoing performances since June 2017 starring as the lead vocalist for “Celebrate Celine,” a tribute to Celine Dion.


Taylor Pardell is a classically trained soprano and cross-over artist based out of New York City, who has a passion for musical theatre, opera and jazz.

Taylor is a cantor (a person who sings solo verses or passages to which the choir or congregation responds) at St. Augustine’s Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She is also a national anthem singer, most notably for the Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox.


With one of the most beautiful voices to grace the classical-crossover genre, Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Joel Ros captures the hearts of audiences with his unique style of pop-infused with a classical flair.


For Joey Niceforo, the 2018 release of his full-length debut album, Priceless, is a key milestone both personally and professionally. It was recorded at London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios with an 80-piece orchestra.


The piano has been part of Paloma Pendharkar’s life for as long as she can remember. She attended the Contemporary Music and Technology program as a piano major at Selkirk College in Nelson, BC.


Musically inclined from birth, Seattle native Elyse Jacobson began studying the violin at the age of five. During her teen years, mentorship from members of the Philadelphia String Quartet ignited in her a lifelong passion for chamber music.

Tickets are available at Bradley’s Bait and Tackle or at the door.

Beer and wine are available before the show and at intermission, so come early and enjoy a glass.
