I’m so happy to announce that collaborative pianist Blair Salter will be joining us as the music director for Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music next summer!
Blair is a recent graduate of the University of Western Ontario’s Master of Music program in Collaborative Piano where she studied with John Hess and Mark Payne. Her credits include work with the Canadian Operatic Arts Academy, Opera NUOVA, La Musica Lirica in Novafeltria, Italy and UWOpera’s productions of La Griselda in 2011 and Die Fledermaus in 2012.
Welcome to the faculty, Blair!
I’m leaving for the airport for the 2012 Audition Tour for HSOW and YOW.
We’re accepting applications right up until auditions are full this week. We’re close, but still have some times available.
If you need to make changes or ask questions, please contact Marja Ernst, our Administrator and Producer, at email@example.com. If you have to reach me, personally, I’ll be on my mobile. Text, emails or calls — 902 521 8577 There will be long periods of time when I cannot answer, because I’ll be in a plane, or listening to lovely singers, or driving :) Text messages might be best!
Can’t wait to see you all!
