Just announced: Against the Grain Summer Intensive

By | Canadian Opera Company, Joel Ivany, Media Release, Summer Intensive, Upcoming | No Comments

“A professional and educational summer training program for today’s musician.”

This exclusive professional summer training program (running over August 13–19, 2018 in downtown Toronto, Canada) is tailor-made to individual singers’ needs.

This program lets you bring your best, your worst, your tired, your polished, (and the ones you won’t do for many many years, but want to look at it) into a space to work on the development of your craft. This intensive is meant for you to prioritize your individual artistic needs, in the middle of August when audition season is just around the corner. Bring us your Mozart. Bring us your weird. Bring us that random piece you really want on your audition package but it’s “just not coached enough”. Or, work on your upcoming roles for the 18-19 Season. We’re here to make this program uniquely yours, and we want to make sure you get what you need to set you up for success.

Guided by some of the core members from the Against the Grain Theatre Creative Team (Joel Ivany, Topher Mokrzewski and Miriam Khalil), applicants will be offered individual coaching, voice lessons, scene study, masterclasses, professional organization skills and a new headshot (optional).

Deadline to apply: Friday, May 25, 2018 at midnight EST. (Candidates will hear back from AtG by June 1.)

Cost: $500, with 50% deposit due June 15. (Remainder due July 15.) Payment can be made by e-transfer to info@againstthegraintheatre.com or in cash.

Location: 227 Front Street East, Toronto, ON, Canada, M5A 1E8
