About the Instructor:
Opera Comedienne Kyra Millan is happiest creating quirky shows that allow her to blend education and performance. Kyra's unique, bubbly personality and experience in front of audiences has resulted in the Canadian Opera Company commissioning her to create a fun, interactive opera comedy show for families three years running.
Other recent performances have included headlining Harbourfront's Voice and Strings Festival in 2014, and a surprise appearance for the TSO Pianos in the City earlier this year. In winter 2013, she created her first full-length show, "Christmas with Hi and Lo," which she created in collaboration with Canadian jazz icon John Alcorn, and performed to sold-out audiences.
Kyra's work in arts education began 18 years ago, facilitating opera workshops for the Canadian Opera Company, as well as musical director of their "Summer Youth Intensive" training program, and many summer camps. Since then, she has worked in over 200 schools teaching workshops as a guest artist educator on behalf of the Royal Conservatory of Music, Opera Atelier, and the Canadian Opera Company.
Kyra is also creator and director of GLESSICAL - now in its fifth year - a year-long program in which young people create, write, compose, build, design and perform their own musical. She also coaches aspiring singers and professionals both in her private studio in Toronto and for professional productions such as Canadian Stage, Stage West, Young People's Theatre, National Arts Centre, and international touring productions.* A 10% discount will be applied automatically at checkout for students who are enrolled concurrently in any of the following Royal Conservatory School music classes: Individual Instruction, Group Classes, Learn to Play/Sing, Small Ensemble, Theory and History.
