    Megan Latham (left) and Joni Henson (right) have been friends for 15 years and shared the stage almost as many times! Trained at the University of Toronto, the Music Academy of the West, and on many of Canada's great operatic stages, these two "divas" are pleased to be singing together again in Victoria after their recent performances in POV's Falstaff.

    Megan and Joni will sing well known duets and favourite arias from the operatic and contemporary repertoires, including works by Copland, Brahms, Bizet, Delibes, and Rossini.
