Storytelling & Songs

November 2021 - Ages 14-17

Led by Jonelle Sills

This series of workshops, led by celebrated Opera signer Jonelle Sills, were designed as weekly sessions meant to build communication skills specific to the medium of song. Participants enjoyed spending time together learning developing their musical and creative talent. 

Jonelle is one of Canada’s 30 hot classical musicians under 30 for 2020 by CBC Music. Jonelle was a member of the Yulanda M. Faris Young Artists Program with Vancouver Opera in 2022. In the fall of 2020 Miss Sills made her debut with the National Arts Centre Orchestra singing Samuel Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Carlos Simon’s Portrait of a Queen with text by Courtney Ware Lett.
