Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
We’re a trio of female opera singers, who love to sing all kinds of music. We like to enjoy the full expanse of the classical crossover genre. Our music spans from true-blue operatic music to our take on pop music.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our music is cinematic and as many of our fans say, “epic.” We really love combining the full orchestral sound with our long vocal melodies and our beautiful trio harmonies. In our original music, we create beautiful solo lines and harmonies, and a potential for cinematic drama in the orchestra. We like to uplift and move people with our music.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Our next show is in February 24, 2017, at the Rose Theatre Brampton with Rob Tardyk and Mark Masri. Our live performance is fun, powerful and dynamic. We always bring the wow with our gorgeous gowns. Musically, we sing a variety of styles in every ViVA show, singing the operatic hits with power and playfulness, and the more contemporary music with emotion and drama, uplifting the classics into new realms. We’ve been overwhelming fortunate to receive standing ovations for every performance.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Our ViVA version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Our favourite are Celine Dion and Michael Buble, Shawn Mendes, Alanis Morissette.
