Halifax’s favourite bombastic, big-bearded bard returns to Symphony Nova Scotia! This time, the one and only Ben Caplan teams up with local classical/jazz pianist Silvio Pupo to belt out the beautiful boleros of Cuba. Seamlessly combining Caribbean rhythms and classical influences with Ben’s brilliant vocals (and fluency in Spanish!), this one-of-a-kind mash-up is sure to be another splendid musical adventure with one of Canada’s most charismatic and compelling performers.

Plus, Ben and Silvio sit down with host Suzanne Lemieux to answer your previously submitted questions!

Please note: This performance will be sung in Spanish, with English commentary and subtitles.
