Barbara Hannigan & Equilibrium Young Artists at LAMP

Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance
97 Kaulbach St
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia B0J 2C0 Canada

Performing in her home province for the first time in years, “new classical music’s greatest working muse” Barbara Hannigan will perform at the Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance (LAMP) on Wednesday, August 28 together with the four outstanding young singers selected for her Equilibrium Young Artists initiative.
Indeed, the gala concert – taking place in LAMP’s deeply intimate, acoustically superb concert hall – is a fundraiser for future EQ programs in Canada.
Joining the critically-acclaimed soprano, conductor and mentor will be soprano Jenavieve Moore, a native of Penticton, B.C. now living in Germany; mezzo soprano Jillian Bonner of Saint John, N.B. (at LAMP this past May where she performed a riveting Charlotte in the Richard Margison-directed production of Massenet’s Werther); tenor Charles Sy of Toronto; and Victoria-born lyric bass Trevor Eliot Bowes.
The four artists were selected following nationwide auditions for the inaugural Canadian running of Hannigan’s Equilibrium Young Artists initiative (EQ). They’ve come to Lunenburg to work with she and her team in preparation for a performance of Mozart’s Requiem with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in January 2020.
Created by Hannigan, EQ is designed for young professional musicians (particularly singers and conductors) in the first substantial phase of their careers and exists to elevate participants’ level of total musicianship and discipline to the highest level.
Working with guest mentors who have included conductors Reinbert de Leeuw and Daniel Harding, soprano Natalie Dessay and Didier Martin, director of Alpha Classics, the program creates professional performance opportunities in collaboration with some of the world’s leading orchestras. Its inaugural 2018/19 season included The Rake’s Progress directed by Linus Fellbom (Gothenburg Symphony, Munich Philharmonic, Ludwig Orchestra, European tour and performances at Aldeburgh and Ojai Festivals), and Mozart’s Requiem (Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic).
It’s been several years since Hannigan, a native of Waverly, last performed in Nova Scotia. A Grammy and multi-Juno Award winner and member of the Order of Canada, she recently received Denmark’s highest classical music honour, the Leonie Sonning Music Prize.
