Barrie’s show choir Bravado! wraps up the season with a concert inspired by the circus. The evening features Cirque Musicale, a mix of music, dance, theatre, and circus arts.
Combining trapeze, silks, and contortion with choreography, visual intrigue and musical excellence, Cirque Musicale promises to be a spectacle never before seen in Barrie.
In addition to the Bravado! band and Bravado! Kids, the choir features a number of special guests such as the A2D2 Aerial Dance Cirque Company, who will deliver moments beyond magic with their daring and beautiful aerial and circus-art feats, Stars United Baton Club, who will wow the audience with their awe-inspiring twirling, and Antonella Frottola (a.k.a Diana Kolpak), who will guide the audience through the mystical Cirque Musicale journey.
As a part of Bravado’s community-based mission and in support of Cirque Musicale’s theme, Bravado! is showcasing the Gilbert Centre at the event. The Gilbert Centre is committed to the greater involvement and meaningful engagement of people who live, work with and are affected by HIV/AIDS (GIPA/MIPA).
Under the musical direction of Marianne Derow, Bravado! challenges traditional notions of choral music by layering vocal excellence with the visually appealing staging and choreography. Their choral-fusion style reflects everything from classical to Gospel, Jazz and Broadway and rock music.
Bravado! presents Cirque Musicale May 3-4 at Georgian Theatre, 1 Georgian Dr., Barrie. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available through Ticket Pro https://secure.ticketpro.ca
