Quartom, from Montreal, will perform Oct. 5 at the Capitol Theatre

Submitted by the Nelson Overture Concerts Society

Canadian a capella male vocal quartet Quartom returns for the second time to the Capitol Theatre stage on Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.

Quartom will perform selections from their highly acclaimed CD, Acte III (2016), which highlights beloved arias of the operatic repertoire. Audiences will be delighted by an evening of Mozart, Bizet, Gershwin, Verdi and Wagner, sprinkled with comedic interludes of wit and charm.

Hailing from Montréal, Quartom is comprised of baritones Benoit Le Blanc and Julien Patenaude, tenor Antonio Figueroa, and bass Philippe Martel. The group’s mission is to introduce classical music to new audiences by offering them world-class talent with a humorous twist. They strive to make music accessible for all and look to push the boundaries of traditional classical music.

Quartom has toured throughout Canada and Europe, enchanting audiences with their musicality, mutual affections, and contagious good humour.

Quartom opens the Nelson Overture Concerts Society 2019-20 season. Tickets are available in person, by phone, or online at capitoltheatre.ca. Admission is free for students aged 18 and under.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
