Two more sleeps til showtime! I’m excited to be performing in a concert presentation of a musical called The Water Seller this weekend and wanted to share the news! I’ll be singing and playing the violin and the tenor sax in the show. The concert features several talented musicians performing live.
Seating is limited to 70-75 per evening so I would suggest purchasing tickets early if you’re interested in attending. Hope to see you there!

Based loosely on Bertolt Brecht’s classic play “The Good Woman of Setzuan”, The Water Seller takes audiences on an operatic journey through 25 years of Chinese history, from 1934 to 1959, telling the story of the Communist rise to power through the lens of one small village in Sichuan province and its ill-fated inhabitants. The new Revolutionary Rock Opera by composer Daniel Deorksen will be performed here in concert setting, featuring soprano Emily Cheung and a jazz-rock orchestra made up of members of Vancouver band Two Apple Tobacco with guest vocalists and instrumentalists. There will be a bar serving beer, wine and treats.
Emily Cheung, Ingrid Cheung, Stephanie Cho, Daniel Deorksen, Kayla Deorksen, Jessica Harvey, Jordan Kling, Cate Richardson, Varya Rubin, Kurt Schindelka, Vern Shewchuk & Greg Valou
