Workshop/Recital This Sunday in Burlington, Ontario - Collaboration: How to Breathe New Life Into Your Musical Activities

This Sunday, January 31st at 3pm in St. Christopher's Anglican Church (662 Guelph Line) in Burlington, I will be presenting Collaboration: How to Breathe New Life Into Your Musical Activities, a workshop/recital oresented in conjunction with Hamilton-Halton ORMTA. About the workshop:
Whether you're a student, professional musician, or teacher, it's never too late to expand the scope of your musical activities through collaboration. Royal Conservatory faculty member and Collaborative Piano Blog author Christopher Foley looks at the genres, skills, and possibilities of the piano in ensemble and how you can incorporate them into your musical life.
My wife (Wendy Hatala Foley) and I will be starting out with a mini-recital of various operatic and art song favorites. This will be special, as believe it or not, Wendy and I have performed together only a handful of times since moving to Toronto (hey, if you were a dramatic mezzo soprano in your vocal prime, wouldn't you rather perform with orchestra?). After that I will be giving a lecture on subjects such as repertoire, training, career options, and how to get projects and partnerships going at any stage of your studies or career. I also hope to have time for a Q+A session, and of course, I plan to tell the fascinating story of my blogging journey of the last four years.

Tickets are $10 advance/$12 at the door. Call (905) 634-9947 to reserve tickets before Sunday. Hope to see you there!
