New Resource for Singers
We are pleased to announce the publication of the first volume of a planned vocal series which highlights arias from Canadian-created operas. The series will be split into voice types. Volume 1 of the soprano edition has just been released. We are hoping to have the Soprano Volume 2 out by the end of January. If these first two volumes are well received, we will be looking at putting out volumes for other voice types.
This huge project is based on the doctoral thesis work of Dr. Stephanie Nakagawa, who worked under the guidence of Dr. Nancy Hermiston, at the University of B.C.
We are offering complimentary copies to performers, teachers and voice students in order to get this into the hands of those who can bring these works to life. This is the first time such a collection of arias has been made available. Previously there was no easy way to find and obtain material from the many operas created by Canadian composers and librettists.
This project was made possible by a grant from the SOCAN Foundation. Please visit our online store to see a list of the contents and see excerpted pages from this new score. Some of the represented composers include, Chan Ka Nin, Victor Davies, John Estacio, Bramwell Tovey, Gary Kulesha, Alexina Louie, Andrew P. MacDonald, Healey Willan.
We have a limited number of complimentary copies available for performers, teachers and students.To request a copy before we run out, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
