As part of the CULTURE22 series, Sivarulrasa Gallery presents Four Centuries of Love and Longing, a classical music concert with voice and guitar. This evening of art song and arias in our beautiful art gallery setting showcases a dynamic set of pieces, arranged and composed for guitar and the soprano voice. It includes works by many great composers, including Purcell, Schubert, Grieg, Faure, De Falla and Argento.

Love has always been a great inspiration to artists and this program delves into the many ways love manifests in our lives, whether through the calmness it instills, the frenzy of a burning passion, the loyalty of devotion, or the emptiness of betrayal.

About the Artists: Finnish-Canadian soprano Emili Losier began singing as a child with the Royal Conservatory of Music and, after performing her first role as Hodel, in The Fiddler on the Roof with the Chilliwack Performing Arts Society, she knew she wanted to be trained as an opera singer. This brought her to Finland, where she completed a Bachelor of Music Degree, an Artistic Diploma in Performance and a Master’s Degree in Opera from the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. She continues to give solo concerts and works with orchestras in Canada and Finland.

Daniel Ramjattan began performing the guitar when he was ten years old in Stratford, Ontario. He has performed in many concert venues in Canada and the U.S. He has won several prizes and awards, and placed as a finalist in many national and international competitions, including 2nd place in the 2016 FCMF National Music Competition, held in Edmonton, Alberta. He holds a Master’s degree and a Bachelor of Music degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Ottawa. He will be pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Toronto in Fall 2017.
