Unique concert upcoming at Mary Winspear Centre benefits Rotary

Classiques Extraordinaire set to wow crowds with homegrown talent including Sunny Shams

Tenor Sunny Shams will be part of a trio of talented young performers who are presenting a unique concert at the Mary Winspear Centre May 19.

SIDNEY – A trio of extremely talented young people are presenting a unique concert at the Mary Winspear this coming weekend.

The concert, titled Classiques Extraordinare, will feature Kinza Tyrrell on piano, and vocals by Sunny Shams and Shadan Saul.

Tyrrell appeared last year at the Mary Winspear and brought down the house with her witty and compelling comments on music. For this show, she will be playing various pieces solo, as well as accompanying and commenting on the offerings of tenor Sunny Shams and his partner, soprano Shadan Saul.

Tyrrell grew up in Victoria and debuted with the Victoria Symphony at the age of twelve. She is currently the principal repetiteur with the Vancouver opera.

Shams grew up in Sidney and is taking the world by storm. He will be appearing with the Victoria Symphony next January.

Saul began singing at a very young age in Mexico City. She has completed the opera program at the University of British Columbia and is appearing in many starring rolls.

Proceeds from the concert will go back into the community, as is the way with Rotary Clubs around the world.

Tickets for the show, which happens Sunday, May 19 at 2:30 p.m. at the Mary Winspear Centre, may be purchased through the Mary Winspear box office at 250-656-0275 or by visiting www.marywinspear.ca.
