Argentinean-Canadian mezzo-soprano Fabiana Katz has appeared as soloist with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, New Westminster Symphony Orchestra, Prince George Symphony Orchestra, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra, as well as many and diverse choral organisations around the province. Ms Katz has recently retired from the Vancouver Chamber Choir after a 10-year tenure. As a recitalist, she focuses on repertoire which highlights her varied cultural background: Spanish, Latin American and Sephardic. She holds a Master of Music degree in choral conducting from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati and is in demand as a teacher and clinician. Presently she is artistic director of FUSION LATINA, the first Canadian choral ensemble dedicated specifically to the performance of Latin American popular and folk music.
Pianist Stephen Smith grew up in rural Nova Scotia, where he sang and played the piano from an early age. After initial studies in his home province in both piano and organ, he attended the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England. Since 1990, Stephen has lived in Vancouver, obtaining his doctoral degree in piano performance from the University of British Columbia (as a student of Jane Coop), and contributing to the musical life of the city as a performer, teacher, conductor, and composer.
