About this Event

Mark your calendars! On Monday, September 16, 4:30-6:30 pm at the Heliconian Hall, 35 Hazelton Av. in Toronto, the IRCPA, based in Corktown, hosts a live, up close and personal conversation with Barbara Hannigan, phenomenal Soprano, Conductor, Ojai Festival Artistic Director, and Founder of Equilibrium, a program for emerging professionals, which she founded in Europe. She generously “gives back” by sharing with young colleagues her knowledge of the international music industry.

Writer/critic William Littler will interview Ms. Hannigan about her personal experience and general advice for emerging professionals. Their conversation will be followed by a Question and Answer opportunity.

Singers, conductors, coaches, teachers, in Toronto and across the country, are invited to send in their questions for Ms. Hannigan in advance to: barbara@ircpa.net. They will be posed to Barbara by Mr. Littler.

LIVE STREAMING: The event will be live streamed from 4:45 to 6:15 pm EDT on September 16 at www.facebook.com/ircpa.toronto

NO CHARGE: There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. Light refreshments will be served.

Equilibrium Young Artists in Europe, gives opportunities to young professional singers and conductors for career guidance and being heard on major stages. Equilibrium’s first venture in Canada is an upcoming collaboration with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. A quartet of Canadian singers, selected by Ms. Hannigan and conductor Sir Andrew Davis, will perform the solo roles in the Mozart Requiem with the TSO in January 2020.

Meanwhile, Barbara sings and conducts in the Toronto Symphony’s opening concerts, September 19 and 21 at Roy Thomson Hall, the same week as this IRCPA event.

A Conversation with Barbara is presented by The International Resource Centre for Performing Artists (IRCPA) in keeping with its Encounters to bring young professionals together with major international figures in the music industry for career development sessions.These have been led by such stellar artists as Sondra Radvanovsky (2016), Brett Polegato (2017), Adrianne Pieczonka (2018), and Theodore Baerg, scheduled for 2020.

The IRCPA's Singing Stars - New Generation Gala Concerts have been broadcast live by The New Classical FM from Zoomer Hall in Toronto. In 2018, 92,000 people across Canada heard the concert.

About The International Resource Centre for Performing Artists

Drawing on the experiences of its international founders, for 36 years the IRPCA has provided valuable resources for the two basic needs of young professional musicians in reducing the famous 5-year GAP between training and employment:

Continued opportunities for growth, and more opportunities to be heard.

Your contribution to the IRCPA Encounters/Concert Fund will enable us to keep these programs active. To relieve the singers of financial burden, these donations will cover the cost of $500 per singer. $1,200 is required for a Career Blueprint, awarded to one singer, for three days at New York's National Opera Center to receive personal mentoring and entirely new promotional materials, including audio/video recordings and photos. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.

Our charitable number is: 100220417
