Versatile singer, songwriter, guitarist and pianist, Sean Sonego and his six-piece band kicked off the Vermilion Allied Arts Council’s 2016 season on Jan. 9 with an energy-infused performance that had the near c apac it y Alumni Theatre singing along to songs

play out that way at the piano bar. He really flexed his artistic muscle when he sang Bohemian Rhapsody as a solo piece on the piano that perfectly exhibited the theatrical range of his voice. After hitting a high note in the middle of the song he joked, “My vocal chords will never be the same again.” The 23 -year- old also per formed

some of his own poetry that he wrote during his down time while recovering from his second knee surgery. He put this poetry to music, including a number he said was inspired by the movie Dead Poets Society, called Carpe Diem, as well as one that was written for his mother, who Sonego s a i d h a s s u p p o r te d h i m i n a l l h i s endeavours. Just when you thought you could guess which direction this Edmonton artist’s two sets were headed, he would throw in a detour, like his unique arrangement of the theme song from the popular children’s show Arthur (the Aardvark), and a spirited performance of East-coast band Captain Tractor’s, Saskatchewan Pirate. From Tennessee Whiskey to Twist and Shout and everything in between, Sean Sonego kicked off the Vermilion Allied Arts Council’s season in style. The next performer in this season’s lineup will be the John Wort Hannam Trio with Karla Adolphe opening the show on Feb. 6.
