Sidgwick Salon/Orpheus Choir@Integral House(Sunday, October 2th, 2016)
On October 2nd,the next generation of Canadian talent sang opera during a rare opportunity to experience Integral House, a spectacular private residence in Toronto and winner of a Medal for Architecture. We enjoyed the acoustical and visual splendor as we celebrated the Sidgwick Scholars Program, where professional opportunities exist for young singers to nurture and hone their vocal craft.
Created in 1988 to honour the memory of the choir’s founders, John and Mary Sidgwick, the program supports emerging vocal artists and their participation within the Orpheus Choir.
This mutual relationship provides Scholars with the opportunity to learn about the rigours and discipline of ensemble singing while honing their performance experience and profile as soloists in the Toronto music scene.
Since its inception, more than 40 talented young singers have performed with Orpheus, many of whom moving on to illustrious careers on the concert stage and in the opera house, both in Canada and internationally.
