Workshop Description:

Learn some of the tools that make singing together fun!

The Sophia Perlman Quartet is:

Sophie Perlman, voice; Adrean Farrugia, piano; Ross MacIntyre, bass; Jeff Halischuk, drums

www.sophiaperlman.com

Sophia Perlman has become a fixture of the Ontario jazz and blues scene. Her musicality, old-soul voice and skill as an improviser have made her a first-call featured singer with some of the top ensembles and musicians in the country. In addition to performing and touring with her own quartet, she is found performing regularly with numerous artists and ensembles.

Early choral training and a knack for picking out harmony nurtured a deep love for singing with others, and Sophia can often be found collaborating with other vocalists, including Terra Hazelton, Julie Michels, Alex Samaras and Tyler Yarema. From 2008-2013, she worked with the Canadian Children’s Opera Company’s OPERAtion KIDS outreach program, and during her tenure worked with close to 2000 elementary aged students in Toronto creating music and opera, as well as instructing two of their choruses for children as young as 3.

  7. Just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to perform at the Paintbox last Saturday. Don (Thompson) and both thought that the entire operation was first class, food was great, service was great (thanks Jocelyn!!), the crowd was a fantastic listening audience and it is obvious that the Paintbox is making a valuable contribution to the revitalization of the Regent Park neighbourhood. Congrats everyone and I hope to see you the next time I am in town. Best regards, Phil Dwyer.
