This afternoon (Sunday March 5,2017) was the memorial for Stuart Hamilton held at the St. Lawrence Center for the Performing Arts in Toronto.  He passed away back on Jan.1,2017.  Long time vocal coach, piano accompanist, and former host of the CBC Saturday Afternoon at the Opera's Quiz, and he also was a panelist on the Met's Opera Quiz, which he also hosted a few times.

It was good to see the large turnout for Mr. Hamilton, long time champion of the Toronto based Opera In Concert series, mostly for his love of the French repertoire.  Several excerpts were performed by that ensemble from Pelleas, Les Pecheurs de Perles,Hamlet, Mignon.

Former heldentenor Ben Heppner was one the readers of excerpts from Mr. Hamilton's book "Opening Windows".
It was a nostalgic afternoon for a man who had grace and charm, and also from some of the audio clips that were played of his own past anecdotes, quite a wonderful sense of humour as well.    He will be missed.
