Mike and Jean – especially Mike – poses with renowned soprano Adrianne Pieczonka

Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka visited the “Classical Mornings” studio to chat with Mike and Jean about The International Resource Centre for Performing Artists’ (IRCPA) Ten Singing Stars: The Next Generation.  This important career mentoring initiative includes a one-day “encounter” (coaching session) with Adrianne, along with general career advice. It concludes with a concert here at Zoomer Hall plus one singer being chosen for a coveted IRCPA Career Blueprint which includes three days at the National Opera Center in New York for a photo/video shoot, audio recording, website consultation, and mentoring – the whole shebang.
