Angela Hewitt and Measha Bruegergossman

Toronto’s Opera Atelier are launching a virtual concert featuring an impressive list of artists including Angela Hewitt, Measha Brueggergosman, Laird Mackintosh and Colin Ainsworth.

The event will be hosted on Wednesday, May 20, 8 p.m. ET by Co-Artistic Directors Marshall Pynkoski and Jeannette Zingg from their homes in Toronto, and will include a guest-appearance from Toronto’s Mayor John Tory.

“The arts provide a powerful source of emotional and spiritual support in times of crisis,” says Pynkoski. “Opera Atelier realizes just how vulnerable people are when separated from the artists they love, just when they need them the most. And while nothing can replicate the vigour of a live performance, our hope is to provide a virtual concert experience that connects and moves our beloved community situated around the world.”

The complete line-up for Together/Apart will include:

Bass-Baritone Douglas Williams — Berlin

Mezzo-Soprano Mireille Lebel — Vancouver

Artist of Atelier Ballet Xi Yi — Toronto

Mezzo-Soprano Wallis Giunta — Leeds

Soprano Meghan Lindsay — Quebec

Mezzo-Soprano Allyson McHardy — Toronto

Artist of Atelier Ballet Juri Hiraoka — Toronto

Baritone Laird Mackintosh — New York
