By Afton Wooten
Sopranos Jaclyn Grossman and Jocelyn Fralic will move on to the next round in the Ten Singing Stars – The New Generation.

Grossman was recently featured in the title role of the North American premiere of the Yiddish opera “Bas-Sheve” at the 2022 Ashkenaz Festival. She is currently part of the Rebanks Family Fellowship and International Residency program at Toronto’s Royal Conservatory.

Fralic has performed with some of the most prominent organizations in Niagara. This summer she was a featured soloist at Lefkas Music week in Lefkada, Greece. This fall, she will also be featured in two recitals with organist Andrew Henderson at St. Catharines’ Knox Presbyterian Church. As well, she was a recipient of the Ontario Arts Council’s Career Catalyst award and of a grant from the Jacqueline Desmarais Foundation.

Baritone Brett Polegato chose the singers to move on to the next round of the competition. This was subsequently followed by a live performance on The New Classical FM. In October Grossman and Fralic will participate in a day-long coaching sponsored by The International Resource Centre for Performing Artists. Here, two winners will be chosen to receive funding for upcoming auditions.

Polegato commented, “The caliber of singing for the IRCPA Encounters has always been extremely high and last year’s was no exception. It was thrilling to work with such a talented group of young artists; not only did they possess fine instruments, but they proved themselves to be excellent, professional hardworking musicians.”
