Event description

Description

Spring in Canada is really worth celebrating, a season sometimes elusive, sometimes moody, always beautiful, that we so impatiently look forward to and dream about many months.

Let's celebrate spring with wonderful music written by great composers:

Brahms, Schubert, Rachmaninoff, Mozart, Verdi, Brediceanu, Enescu, Lara, Gershwin.

Beautiful songs - some romantic, some joyful, truly spring-like, will be brought to life by two very talented artists:

soprano Nofar Yacobi and pianist Coral Solomon.

Saturday, May 4th, 2019 | 7:00 PM | Glenn Gould Studio - CBC, Toronto

Ode to Spring



Nofar Yacobi - Soprano

NOFAR YACOBI brings a brilliant presence to the stage with her unique voice color and acting skills. She is one of the selected concert artists of the prestigious Rebanks Family Fellowship & International Performance Residency at the Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory in Toronto.

Her recent debut with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Frédéric Chaslin was broadcast live on the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation Radio. She made her United States debut last year under the baton of Steven Smith with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra in a solo gala concert.

Nofar Yacobi recorded for Disney Pictures the Hebrew version of Beauty and the Beast live action movie. Her performances include being soloist with the Haifa Symphony Orchestra, Israel Netanya Kibbutz Orchestra, Ra’anana Symphonette Orchestra, Israel Symphony Rishon-LeZion Orchestra, Ferrara Conservatory Orchestra, Revolution Orchestra, and the Academy Chamber Orchestra. She performed as a soloist in the Eilat Chamber Music Festival and the Abu-Gosh Music Festival.

Her operatic roles are equally impressive and include the Queen of the Night and Papagena in Die Zauberflöte (Mozart), Despina in Così fan tutte (Mozart), Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos (R. Strauss), Oscar in Un Ballo in Maschera (Verdi), Zerlina in Don Giovanni (Mozart), The Sand and the Dew fairies in Hänsel und Gretel (Humperdinck), Clorinda in La Cenerentola (Rossini), Suor Genovieffa and Suor Osmina in Suor Angelica (Puccini), Soeur Constance in Dialogues of the Carmelites (Poulenc), Madame Herz in Der Schauspieldirektor (Mozart), and more. She has also given many recitals of operatic arias, concert songs, and musical theatre songs.

Ms. Yacobi graduated from the Buchman-Mehta School of Music at the Tel Aviv University and is an alumna of the Israeli Opera Meitar Studio Program and the Calgary Opera Emerging Artist Program. She received the AICF, the Buchman-Mehta School of Music and the Eli Leon Scholarships, the Sir Jack Lyons Charitable Trust and the Azrieli Foundation sponsorships.


Coral Solomon - Piano

"Young Canadian pianist Coral Solomon demonstrated a remarkable maturity of interpretation, musicality, and sensibility which proved a great talent and an intelligent and original approach” - (Libertatea, Bucharest Romania)

Israeli born pianist, Coral Solomon has been praised for her “distinct sensibility” and “original view” (Radio Romania Musical) and has performed numerous solo recitals throughout Canada, USA, Italy, France, Romania, and Israel. She has appeared as soloist with over a dozen orchestras across Canada, Italy, and Romania. She has particularly a vast concertizing history in Romania (her family’s native country) where she performed with the philharmonic orchestras of Sibiu, Timișoara, Brașov, Bacău, Arad, Târgu Mureș, Ploiești, Râmnicu Vâlcea, among others; as well as recitals throughout the main halls in Bucharest, Oradea, Craiova, Sibiu, Bacău. In the summer of 2014, she returned to collaborate with the Bacau Philharmonic Orchestra for the 3rd time, as she debuted a piano concerto transcription of Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme by Corelli, dedicated to her by retired Romanian conductor of New Jersey Plainfield Symphony, Sabin Păuța.

Coral has been awarded several prizes at competitions and has been frequently interviewed by several North American and European television channels, where her performances were broadcasted on national and international transmissions. She has also participated in intensive international summer festivals including the Pianofest in the Hamptons (Long Island, NY), the Morningside Music Bridge Institute (Calgary), the Toronto Summer Music Institute, and the Orford Summer Music Festival (Quebec).

Coral moved with her family to Toronto in 2004 and has been a pre-college student at the Taylor Academy (formerly known as the Young Artist Performance Academy) of the Royal Conservatory of Music. She has completed her undergraduate degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music and her Master’s degree at Boston University, under the tutelage of Antonio Pompa-Baldi and Pavel Nersessian respectively. During her studies in the United States, she was a recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Musician Grant.

Coral is currently pursuing her Doctoral of Music degree in piano performance at the University of Toronto with Enrico Elisi, on a full scholarship. As an active member of the community, she has been invited to adjudicate several festivals/competitions and collaborates in concert with different instrumentalists. She also has a teaching assistantship as a piano collaborator with the undergraduate and graduate violinists at the University, while maintaining a private piano studio at home in North York.
