Sunday concert in Langley covers the globe

Chad Louwerse has travelled coast to coast and beyond as a bass baritone since graduating from Trinity Western University.

He’s returning in the second installment of TWU’s Faculty + Friends Recital Series called Songs of Love, Loss and Laughter.

The TWU School of the Arts, Media + Culture hosts the concert Jan. 11 at 2:30 p.m. in the Langley Mennonite Fellowship, 20997 40th Ave.

Louwerse’s CV includes performing l’Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg as Bernadino in Berlioz’ Benvenute Cellini. In Canada, he has been heard from coast to coast. He starred as Boniface in Haydn’s Il Mondo Della Luna, sang Talpa in Il Tabarro, and covered Leporello in Don Giovanni with the Montreal Opera.

He will be joined by SAMC music instructor Betty Suderman, herself an in-demand performer of lieder and chamber music. She has performed in Canada, the Pacific Northwest, Europe, and Africa. She has recorded with Vancouver Cantata Singers, The Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir, and West Coast Mennonite Chamber Choir.

The Jan. 11 show features songs such as Spanish-inspired airs of Don Quixote, art songs, spirituals, humorous songs, and more.

Tickets for Love, Loss and Laughter are $10 for students and seniors, $15 for adults, and $30 for families. People can get tickets in advance through Eventbrite, or with cash at the door.
