Catherine Lippitt, soprano with Brad Mahon, guitar

Catherine Lippitt began her musical training in Calgary, Alberta, singing in choirs. Some of the groups she has sung with are: Mount Royal Youth Choir and Kantorei, Ad Libitum Vocal Ensemble (Calgary), Spiritus Chamber Choir, the Alberta, Manitoba and National Youth Choirs and the Festival Ensemble for the European Music Festival in Stuttgart, Germany with Maestro Helmuth Rilling. Catherine is a founding member of the Canadian Chamber Choir. This group is made up of singers from across Canada, and their mandate is to create community through Choral Singing. Catherine is thrilled to be back singing for the ProArts Society, Music@Noon series.

Brad Mahon is Dean of the Faculty of Continuing Education at Mount Royal University. When not in committee meetings or studying spreadsheets, he regularly sneaks off campus to moonlight as a guitarist, adjudicator, clinician, and lecturer. Brad has released three commercial recordings, has appeared as a guest on several other recordings, and continues to perform live and via live-stream. He also maintains his long-standing affiliation with the Royal Conservatory of Music as guitar examiner and the administrative lead for its guitar program. Brad’s formal education is highlighted by a PhD (musicology) from the University of Calgary, an MBA (executive management) from Royal Roads University, and an ARCT (guitar) from the Royal Conservatory of Music.

Love and Tears” After a long hiatus, Catherine and Brad are looking forward to performing again in the ProArts series at the Cathedral. All of this concert’s selections are well-known vocal melodies that reflect deep human emotions. The program will feature guitar arrangements originally scored for orchestra, lute, or piano accompaniment. Repertoire includes traditional folk songs and works by Dowland, Schubert, Vivaldi, and Puccini.
