HOT TICKET UPDATE: Pavlo and Remigio reunite to carry on with tour

Internationally renowned artists to perform on 6 October 2016

Renowned Mediterranean instrumental artist Pavlo has announced that the Pavlo & Remigio: Guitarradas tour will continue with Remigio Pereira on the bill. This change will affect shows in Brampton, Oshawa, Windsor and the October date at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in St. Catharines.

“The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre has always been excited by the collaboration of these two outstanding performers and we knew our audiences would be as well. We are thrilled that the show will continue as originally intended,” Steve Solski, Executive Director.

The tour’s potential lineup change was in limbo following on a recent performance by the vocal quartet, The Tenors, where Pereira changed lyrics to the Canadian National Anthem.

Despite the ensuing controversy, the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre remain focused on providing outstanding audience experiences.

“Our interest is in sharing artistic excellence in all art forms from the highest calibre artists with our community. It is up to our audience members to choose who they wish to see perform.” Sara Palmieri, Programming and Marketing Manager.

Advance tickets for Pavlo & Remigio have been selling quickly to HOT TICKET members. They go on sale to the public on 17 August.

The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre is looking forward to presenting Pavlo & Remigio on Thursday 6 October 2016 in Partridge Hall. Pavlo is an award-winning, instrumental artist, performer and songwriter. His signature Mediterranean sound features a mix of Greek, flamenco, Latin and Balkan music. Remigio Pereira gained international fame with the multi-platinum selling vocal group The Tenors. Although he is primarily known as a virtuosic singer, Pereira is as equally gifted on the guitar.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Wednesday, 17 August at 10am. Advance and discounted tickets are on sale now to HOT TICKET members.
