As part of our Discovery Series, Music Toronto brings a vocal recital to our stage each year. This season we have the pleasure of presenting Canadian soprano Andriana Chuchman on January 21, 2016. With our Discovery Series, we feature Canadian artists – providing performance experience for artists and concert opportunities at a reduced price for audiences.
Surrounded by music for most of her life, Andriana and her sister would sing Ukrainian folk songs to entertain family and friends. Andriana’s parents sent her for voice training with Ruth Ens before she entered high school. As a teen, she performed in school productions, sang with a harmony group, and studied trumpet, ballet, and Ukrainian folk dance. She went on to study at the School of Music at the University of Manitoba and continues to make her home in Winnipeg with her husband.
Andriana hit the opera media spotlight two years ago when she made an unexpected early debut at the Met. Scheduled to debut in February of 2014 in “The Enchanted Island”, she was called upon to replace Anna Netrebko on short notice for a couple of performances of “L’Elisir d’Amore” when Ms. Netrebko was stricken with the flu.
We are very happy we were able to book her Toronto recital debut just before all of that happened!
