Acclaimed Montreal soprano Kerry-Anne Kutz will join Victoria pianist/composer Nicholas Fairbank to perform melodies and art songs from the Canadian and European repertoire Friday at the First Unitarian Church of Victoria.

Kutz has sang in concert halls in every province and territory of Canada as throughout the United States and in Australia, England, India, Singapore, Italy and Mexico.

Kutz has been collaborating with Faribank for a number of years and have appeared at recitals together in both Victoria and Montreal. In 2012 they produced the CD Art Songs: Heart Songs, which contains 19 of Fairbank’s original compositions written between 1994 and 2008. The April 1 recital will contain some of these as well as a new set of songs in Spanish that he wrote this past summer during an artistic residency in Peru.

The  First Unitarian Chamber Choir, a group of 10 singers who perform one Sunday a month at FUCV under Fairbank’s direction, will also perform at the concert.

The concert will be Friday at 7 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church of Victoria, 5575 West Saanich Rd. Admission by donation at the door, with proceeds going to support the church’s music program.
