Salon Social #5 with Sunny Shams – July 12th!

Tenor Sunny Shams will be our next guest singer at the Fieldhouse for our 5th Salon Social with accompaniment by pianist Roger Parton.

Acclaimed for his sensational interpretation as lead in the world premiere of Stickboy with Vancouver Opera, Sunny Shams is known for his beautiful, rich, velvety and expressive tenor voice, and his dramatic connection with the characters whom he portrays on stage. After experiencing singing in the chorus for a season with Pacific Opera Victoria, Sunny was convinced that it is the ultimate art form and set out on his operatic career which has seen him around the world working with teachers such as Peter Barcza, Heather Thompson, Virginia Zeani, Montserrat Caballé, Daniel Okulitch, and with his late mentor, tenor Melvyn Poll.

Free admission, snacks, and tea. Full – no seats left!
