Ken Lavigne and 3 Knights with a Tenor entertain Quesnel with British ballads

The performance went live April 23 at Bethel Church

A founding member of The Canadian Tenors wowed the audience at Bethel Church in Quesnel on Saturday, April 23.

Ken Lavigne’s 3 Knights with a Tenor featured the music of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John with a blend of classical tenor sound and modern style.

Quesnel Live Arts (QLA) called it a night to remember.

“Such a good turnout for the concert last night,” QLA wrote Sunday, April 24 on Facebook.

“Thanks to Ken Lavigne for sending everyone home with a song in their heart and a big smile on their faces.”

Before performing in Quesnel, Lavigne made stops in Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Burns Lake with pianist Nico Rhodes, bassist Casey Ryder and violinist Thomas Neville.

Lavigne was a founding member of the Canadian Tenors in 2004 and then in 2006 he co-founded the tenor trio, ROMANZA. In 2007 he shifted focus to producing solo performances and CD recordings that include On the Street Where You Live, Believe, O Night Divine, Keep Holding On and Showtime.

He released a Christmas CD in October 2014 entitled Comfort & Joy.
