Mezzo-Soprano Kristin Hoff and pianist Antoine Joubert come together to offer a delightful concert of French, Spanish and cabaret music. Kristin has performed extensively in opera, concert, and new music; these concerts include debuts at Carnegie Hall and with Vancouver Opera, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestras. Dr. Antoine Joubert has been a finalist at the international competition level and is a prize-winner with the Prix d’Europe, the Festival du Royaume, the CCC Music Festival of Toronto, among others. Next year he will release his first solo piano CD.

Married since 2009, the couple has performed recitals together in Niagara-on-the-Lake, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Nanaimo, Vancouver, West Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Join us on Wednesday November 26th for a very special concert by two blossoming musicians!
