Victoria, B.C. tenor Ken Lavigne and his band will present ‘The Road to Carnegie Hall’. Ken will take you on a riveting journey, retelling his dream of singing at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops. The show is a little bit of Frank Sinatra or Michael Buble, a little bit of Luciano Pavarotti and a bit of Elvis thrown in. The evening will include pop standards, operatic selections and some surprises. Tickets are available for this performance at Process 4 circle arts Gallery (250-692-3434) and at the door.
