Heather Pawsey, returns to the Gung Haggis Fat Choy musical line-up for 2005. She is a noted Soprano recently seen in last year's Vancouver Opera's
“Electra” as the Confidant. “It was a hoot!” she says of
her participation at 2004 Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner – as she
sang songs in old Gaelic and Mandarin Chinese. She also changed costumes from a
very smart long dress tartan and vest outfit to a very sexy red Chinese
cheong-sam. While spending Christmas 2004 in Sasketchewan, her mother bought her a
new outfit to wear for Gung Haggis Fat Choy! For 2005, she will again sing in
Mandarin + sing an opera song set in Scotland.
Heather sings in all the opera languages, French, German, Italian, and
only recently added Mandarin and Cree. Last year on Chinese New
Year's Day, Heather sang “Jasmine Flower” in Mandarin to my accordion
accompaniment, for a joint radio broadcast by CBC Radio and Fairchild
Heather is tres cool! Heather also LOVES Robbie Burns
dinners. She looks forward to singing songs in both Mandarin and
Gaelic. She secretly professes that Ye Banks and Braes and My Luv is Like a Red Red Rose are her favorite Burns songs… Heather has hosted her own Burns dinners, and can recite Address to a Haggis as well as Robert Service, the noted Scots-Canadian who wrote the immortal words: There are strange things done in the midnight sun…
