The Gala concerts will feature internationally renowned Tenor Rosario La Spina, Mezzo-Soprano Milijana Nikolic, and Dramatic Soprano Elizabeth Lewis. The highly regarded trio will bring highlights of operatic music to the concerts, including excerpts from Bizet’s Carmen and everyone’s favourite O Sole Mio, with a twist.  

Special guest artist Alex Raineri will play Saint Saëns Africa - Fantasie for Piano and Orchestra, Op 89, while ballroom dancers will once again gracefully glide across the stage to Masquerade Waltz by Khachaturian.
