Isabel Bayrakdarian, Soprano
Serouj Kradjian, Pianist
An unforgettable evening of music awaits CMK audiences when the distinguished married team of soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian and pianist/composer Serouj Kradjian appear together on our stage!
Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian burst onto the international opera scene after winning first prize in the 2000 Operalia competition founded by Plácido Domingo. Since then, she has performed in many of the world's major opera houses and concert halls. She is admired as much for her stunning stage presence as for her exceptional musicality, and she has followed a career path completely her own. Ms. Bayrakdarian sings on the Grammy award-winning soundtrack of the blockbuster film The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers. She has been honoured with four Juno awards, Canada's highest recording prize, and received the Golden Jubilee Medal from the Queen.
Solo and chamber music concerts have taken Mr. Kradjian across North America -from Carnegie Hall to Los Angeles-and to Europe and the Far East. He has been described as "a pianistic hurricane", "not only as a virtuoso pianist, but also as a complete artist" (La Rioja, Spain). Chamber Music Kelowna audiences will fondly remember the sensation Mr. Kradjian created when he appeared as a last minute replacement with his colleagues of the Amici Ensemble, March 2010.
This spectacular concert featuring artists of this caliber will undoubtedly rival many of CMK's previous sell-outs. Purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.
