Les Etoiles du Nord: The Canadian Vocal Heritage

A UNIQUE AUDIO LECTURE ON JUNE 1 WILL CELEBRATE CANADA’S MUSICAL HERITAGE

In anticipation of Canada Day, 2017, The French American Victory Club of Waltham is pleased to present noted lecturer Ed Tapper in an audio lecture / presentation entitled “Les Etoiles du Nord: The Canadian Vocal Heritage, 1850-Present.”

The lecture will feature several rare recordings by historic Canadian singers of folk, popular and classical music. Reflecting the diverse cultural heritage of the country, selections in both French and English will be included. Famed singers from almost every province will be showcased, as well as a wide variety of vocal works from throughout the dominion. The featured music will include everything from Canadian patriotic and folk tunes to virtuoso opera and sacred arias from the 18th-20th centuries.

Mr. Tapper has taught Music History at both UMass/Boston and Suffolk University. Currently, he is the owner of Orpheus Classics, a world-renowned music store located on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, and, more recently, online as well. Exploring a wide variety of musical topics, he is a frequent lecturer throughout New England and in New York. The selections to be played on his upcoming program for the French American Victory Club, were taken from his own private collection, and that of his store.

The lecture will take place on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 7:00 pm, and will run approximately 80 minutes in length. It will be held in the ballroom of the French American Victory Club, located at 193 Elm Street (corner of Elm and Pine Streets,) Waltham, MA 02453.
