Mezzo Soprano Barb Towell and Pianist Tina Chang are seasoned vets on the opera scene. Well, maybe not too seasoned but with around 40 productions between them, they know a thing or two about what it takes to entertain a crowd of 4000 hungry opera fans, night after night. Barb has sung in the chorus and small roles with the Vancouver Opera since 1999. Tina has worked as a vocal coach/repetiteur all across North America and the UK, playing the part of the orchestra for the singers while they reherse and stage the show.
They've created concerts that have all the magic and drama of high priced operas but something way more up close and personal. Barb and Tina are 'breaking the fourth wall' with their series of intimate shows which bring musical class to audiences in an engaging, witty and often hilarious way. Configured for intimate neighbourhood venues seating 50-300, Barb and Tina offer a super fresh take on music and song.
