Elmer Iseler Singers Announce New Initiative: Emerging Composer/Conductor Workshop at the Canadian Music Centre!
The Elmer Iseler Singers, Lydia Adams, Artistic Director, are thrilled to announce a new initiative in the EIS educational outreach program on Saturday, September 30th, 2023 at the Canadian Music Centre.
The emerging choral composers’ and conductors’ workshop features six composers from the VIVA Singers Toronto choral composition program.
The Singers are excited to work with these composers to assist them in honing their skills for their future work.
The Singers and Lydia Adams will also mentor four emerging conductors, Nathan Gritter, Manishya Jayasundera, Deborah Park and Emily Taub, all from the Toronto area, conducting compositions by Canadian composers Eleanor Daley, Ruth Watson Henderson and Hussein Janmohamed, all Associate Members of the CMC.
This new initiative is an exciting one for the Elmer Iseler Singers, in that it showcases both emerging Canadian choral composers, and also the next generation of Canadian choral conductors!
This is one of three educational workshops the Elmer Iseler Singers will present during the 2023-2024 concert season and we look forward to the thrill of working with all these fine artists.
Tickets are not available for this workshop, unfortunately, due to limited space, but future workshops will be available for interested audience members to attend.
