Because of the artistic directors’ close association with the Glenn Gould School, there is an ongoing infusion of young talent into our productions where they learn from senior company members. A great example is young Canadian artist Meghan Lindsay, who came to Opera Atelier through the Glenn Gould School, sang in our chorus, and has now been the leading lady several of our recent productions.
Many of Opera Atelier’s regular singers came to us directly from opera school of the Royal Conservatory of Music. Many have continued performing with us for ten to fifteen years, and have through exposure to our guest conductors, music directors etc. become specialists in their own right and now perform our repertoire for other companies internationally.
Marshall Pynkoski and Jeannette Lajeunesse Zingg are also guest faculty members of the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute.
