(LEAMINGTON, ON) – Having unpacked their suitcases and closed storage units around the globe, following an intensive touring schedule with Cirque du Soleil, musical duo Kari Lynn and Roger Hewett are now calling Leamington their home base.
The Bank Theatre is presenting Assorted Flavours: an Intimate Evening with Kari Lynn and Roger Hewett on April 29 at 7:30pm. The programming committee chair, Sharon Light, is thrilled about the Hewett’s upcoming concert.
“Kari Lynn and Roger are two extremely warm, talented and funny people,” Light said. “They are a wonderful addition to our performance community here in Leamington.”
Kari Lynn, of Stevens Point, WI, and Roger Hewett, originally from Norwich, England, met while Roger was touring the US as musical director with Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo. The rest, as they say, is the continuation of a love story in the making, each drawn to the other by their passion for the arts, their love of performance, and the worldwide stage.
Kari Lynn is a versatile, classically trained vocalist, skilled lyricist, and singer-songwriter whose artistic talents are virtually limitless in a variety of genres from musical theatre to classic rock. Roger is a highly sought-after composer, orchestrator, and musical director whose works include film and television scores for Paramount, Disney, Alliance Atlantis, and Cirque du Soleil.
“Not many people get a standing ovation at Dale’s Friday Coffee House. Kari Lynn and Roger Hewett brought the house down,” said Jan Hall, the host of Folk Roots Radio. “You’ve got to see them perform a full show.”
An evening with Kari Lynn and Roger Hewett promises to be a kaleidoscope of class and quirk with cover and original music set to the masterful piano performances of Roger, presented with the dramatic, elegant flare and singing excellence that is only Kari Lynn.
The acclaimed duo will be joined by local musical guests.
