Songbook 8: Brent Carver

Brent Carver's career has spanned the full range of performance possibilities, from Hamlet at the Stratford Festival to Molina in A Kiss of the Spiderwoman on Broadway. The Tony Award winner's exceptional range is reflected in a program of many genres, including the American songbook, music of the 1960s, and musical theatre. 

Accompanied by a selection of our finest musicians, Brent will perform twelve songs crafted into ambitious arrangements exclusively for this concert by a selection of the best composers and arrangers in Canada.
