Ingrid Mapson (www.ingridmapson.com) is giving a recital at the 100 Mile United Church on Nov. 17. Ingrid is recognized as an exceptional mezzo soprano with an amazing voice and stunning stage performance. As soon as I heard her voice when I settled in 100 Mile House in 2007, I knew she would have a promising singing career if she decided to pursue it.
With her effort, she has established a name in the music world in British Columbia. She is sought after to perform for prestigious symphony orchestras, namely the Kamloops Symphony and the Prince George Symphony.
Its media release stated of Ingrid: “B.C. has many hidden treasures and one of their jewels is Mezzo Soprano Ingrid Mapson in the B.C. Cariboo.”
Other guest performers at the 100 Mile House recital are violinist Curtis Wolfe and pianist Marilyn Buyar.
The recital will be held at the 100 Mile United Church, 49 Dogwood Cresc., starting at 2 p.m. Admission is by donation at the door.
