Renowned Pianist to Direct CABS Opera Gala at HIFA 2018

21 March 2018

 The CABS Opera Gala at the 2018 edition of HIFA will be under the musical directorship of Craig Terry. Craig is an accomplished, pianist with a solid international career performing with distinguished vocalists. He has also performed with accomplished musical groups including the world-famous Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra. A native of Tullahoma, Tennessee, Craig earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from Tennessee Technological University. He also earned a Masters of Music in Piano Performance/Accompanying from the Manhattan School of Music where he was a student of pianist Warren Jones.
 
The CABS Opera Gala will once again feature a wide range of pieces taken from the singers’ repertoires as well as HIFA audience favourites. HIFA Founder and Artistic Director Manuel Bagorro noted that the journey of Opera at HIFA has seen an increase in the number of people taking an interest in such performances at HIFA. This bodes well for HIFA’s aim of presenting a full Opera at the Festival in the new future.  “Our aim as a Festival is to introduce different offerings and genres to people from all walks of life,” noted Bagorro, “and the fact that the CABS Opera Gala offers a family night out in an ‘evening picnic’ type of setting makes it ideal for families from all over Zimbabwe to enjoy something beautiful under the stars together.”
 
The CABS Opera Gala will be held on CABS Day which is Wednesday 2 May at HIFA 2018. HIFA 2018, which has  the theme “We Count”, will run from 1 May to 6 May.‌
