Hailed by the New York Times as ‘a robust baritone’, a graduate of the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City with recent debuts at Carnegie Hall, Canadian baritone Jonathan Estabrooks continues to make a unique and rich contribution to the performing arts world. His vocalism and performance style have been called “commanding, rich, fresh and energetic”, his stage presence likened to that of a young Ron Howard.
Mr. Estabrooks has appeared in recital, concert and opera in Canada, the United States and abroad. His impressive vocal delivery has taken him around the world, in Opera and concert performances and to venues such as Carnegie Hall and performances with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Israeli Chamber Orchestra and alongside Broadway stars Ashley Brown and Aaron Lazar. His performances have also been broadcast throughout Canada on CBC Television and he has performances for the Governor General, The Prime Minister of Canada, the US Ambassador to Canada, The Italian Ambassador to Canada and President Bill Clinton.
Jonathan joins me this evening for a very promising evening of ‘great talk’ and exceptional performances.

Music Composer Rich Walters was recently just nominated for his 2nd Leo award in as many years. As well, over the past five years he’s been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for his score in the television mini series, Ring Of Fire. He was also fortunate enough to have won a Leo Award for that same mini series last year. He’s also been the recipient of two Emmy Award Nominations for the television mini series, Tin Man and Alice. Currently Rich is busy composing the score for Neill Blomkamps next feature film for Sony Pictures and MRC starring Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Wearver, Sharlto Copley and Dev Patel titled “Chappie”. He’s also looking forward to beginning work on a new television series for SYFY Universal titled “Olympus”. Over the past few years, Rich has recorded with the Czech National Symphony in Prague. As well, he’s recorded with the London Philharmonic at Abbey Road Studios and been fortunate enough to have worked at Air Studios Lyndhurst in London. After high school Rich continued his study of music at Capilano University where he focused on Jazz, music theory and composition. It was also at this point where he began to study Piano and Guitar. Although his primary interests have always been jazz and electronica, Rich continually finds himself enamored with the avant-garde side of modern music which keeps inspiring him as a composer for film, television and multimedia productions.You can email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Twitter @123Film
