Call for Pianists: Canadian Operatic Arts Academy, May 1-25, 2014 in London, Ontario

Kathryn Tremills recently emailed me with info about the upcoming Canadian Operatic Arts Academy to be held from May 1-25, 2014 in London, Ontario. Kathryn writes about the program:
COAA is geared towards slightly less experienced pianists, although the schedule will be quite rigorous. A number of scenes are rehearsed and performed with piano, and regular masterclasses are held for which the students will play. They will have the opportunity to work with master performer and teacher Martin Katz and head of the COC Studio Ensemble, coach Liz Upchurch. The audition tour begins in November 9, DVDs accepted until Nov 29.
In other words, if you're interested in learning some rep and working with luminaries such as Martin Katz or Liz Upchurch with a view towards playing larger programs in the coming years, COAA might be the program for you. If you're able to catch the audition tour, here is the schedule:

London: November 9 & 10, 2013
Halifax: November 23, 2013
Montreal: November 24, 2013
Quebec City: November 25, 2013
Calgary/Lethbridge, AB: November 27, 2013
 Toronto: November 28, 2013
Vancouver: November 29, 2013
Amsterdam & Milano: January 2014

Kathryn Tremills is the Director of Collaborative Piano for the program. If you need more detailed info, you can email her at tremillsk [at] gmail dot com.
