Ten young professional singers have been selected to perform in Singing Stars: The Next Generation, Nov. 6 at Zoomer Hall, Toronto, presented by the International Resource Centre for Performing Artists, a service organisation for Canada’s musicians.
The 10 singers are :
Sopranos: Brianna de Santis, Vania Margani
Mezzo-soprano: Beste Kalendar
Tenors: Asitha Tennekoon, Jacques Arsenault, Jean-Philippe Fortier Lazure
Baritones: Andrey Andreychik, Bradley Christensen, Clarence Frazer, David Diston
All of the singers will have taken part in the IRCPA’s Encounter with Brett Polegato, in which the celebrated Canadian operatic baritone will have provided valuable advice, encouraging the singers to advance their skills, offering career guidance, and preparing them for the concert.
The singers will be featured in an evening of operatic or oratorio arias with pianist Rachel Andrist. Ms. Andrist is also collaborative pianist for the Encounter.
At the conclusion of the November 6 concert, one of the singers will be chosen to receive a coveted IRCPA Career Blueprint Award. The recipient will spend three days at the National Opera America Center in New York, where new photographs, video and audio recordings, website consultation, mentoring with professionals, and more is provided.
