Vancouver Island Opera’s (VIO) last recital this season will take place this Sunday, with all things Mozart.

Called Mozartiada, the program features an afternoon of Mozart compositions featuring acclaimed recitalist, chamber and collaborative musician Nikolai Maloff playing Piano Concerto Number 9 with a string quartet. 

Maloff has won numerous piano competitions in Canada and overseas and has performed with orchestras around the world.

Local soprano Skye Donald will also be performing in the recital, who performed in VIO’s production of The Barber of Seville in their 2009 recital series and was most recently featured at a spring concert held by the Island Consort Choir. Donald currently serves as the choir director at St. Stephen’s United Church. 

Tenor Hugh Sinnott is also set to perform, involved in opera for many years including 13 years with the Pacific Opera Victoria.

Members of the string quartet, Calvin Dyck,Vanessa Blais-Temblay, Manti Poon and Brian Mix each have their own success stories and are all accomplished Canadian musicians.

The recital takes place Sunday, May 15 at 3 p.m. at the McMillan Arts Centre in Parksville (formerly the Oceanside Arts Council). Tickets are $20 available at the door and refreshments are included.
