Abbotsford, BC: Carmen (and other works)

June 7 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

SSS EVENTS presents:
CARMEN (and other works)

​​Calvin Dyck, the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra and the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance will perform an exciting and visceral arrangement of Bizet’s opera “Carmen” written for strings and 27 percussion instruments played by 5 percussionists on Friday, June 7th at 7pm at the Abbotsford Arts Centre (2329 Crescent Way).

Bizet’s melodies are re-clothed in a variety of fresh instrumental colors, set to new rhythms and often phrased with a great deal of sly wit. Reviewer James Sanderson calls the work “an iconoclastic but highly entertaining retelling of Bizet’s opera.”
​Also included in this year-end concert will be other pieces performed by all of the divisions of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra.
