PTF member, Tara Wohlberg, pens libretto for new opera

Esteemed musician and Piano Teachers Federation member, Tara Wohlberg, has penned the libretto for Stephan Chatman's new opera, Choir Practice.

The World Premiere for Choir Practice will take place on May 8, 2015 at 7:30 on stage at the Old Auditorium (6344 Memorial Road) and will be followed by a second performance on May 9.

The evening promises to be a night of comedy as the audience follows a cast of misfit musicians through a particularly entertaining choir rehearsal.

"The idea is to entertain people," says Wohlberg. "It's pure whimsy- and just a really farcicial comedy."

The opera is presented by UBC Opera and features conductor Jonathan Girard, as well as members of the UBC Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets are available at, by telephone at 604.822.6725 or in person at the Old Auditorium Box Office.
