Dinner and Music Pairing ~ Kevin Lavigne
January 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Master entertainer is the best way to describe Ken Lavigne, British Columbia’s iconic tenor who has charmed his way into the hearts of concert goes around the world with his exciting blend of classical sound and modern style.
Lavigne’s entrancing voice and vivacious performance is the perfect accompaniment to a special multi-course dinner and music pairing at the new Alto Kitchen & Bar as part of the High Notes Music Series. Indeed, Lavigne is at home trilling away amid tables laden with deliciousness. He once worked as a singing waiter (way back before his talents took him to the big stage) serving up operatic arias and fine food.
With a voice like liquid gold, Lavigne is renowned for delivering an experience unlike any other and is a regular performer with multi-Grammy winner David Foster and the founding member of two highly successful bands, The Canadian Tenors and Romanza. He even entertained royalty when he sang for Prince Charles at Government House in Victoria.
If you saw Ken at the High Notes Festival last year, you’ll know that this is a show you won’t want to miss. Leave your preconceived notions at the door, this is not your normal classical experience.
