performing this year
Rhonda Head is a Mezzo-Soprano from Opaskwayak Cree Nation. She has been studying classical music with Private vocal teachers from Toronto, Ontario; Denver, Colorado; The Pas, Manitoba; and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Rhonda also had the opportunity to study with Dramatic Mezzo Soprano - Barbara McAllister in Oklahoma, and world renowned Vocal teacher Richard Armstrong at the Banff Centre for Arts.
Rhonda will be recorded her third CD at the Banff Centre and it was considered to be a huge stepping stone for her as an artist. She has written the songs and composed the music in her CD called Kisakihitan. The music will fuse Classical and First Nation music that creates hauntingly beautiful music. Sharing and singing classical/spiritual music with the public is extremely rewarding to her. To be able to perform these beautiful timeless pieces will be an experience of a lifetime. This event will allow Rhonda to reach a wider audience, nationally and globally. Rhonda received a nomination for Best Inuit, Indigenous Language or Fracophone and won the respective category.
