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.

Born in Montreal, Quebec, Gino Vannelli is one of three sons. As a child, Gino's greatest passion was music, and he began playing percussion at an early age. By the age of 15, Gino began writing songs. Just out of high school, he signed his first recording contract with RCA and went on to study music at McGill University.
This quote summarizes the man in a nutshell; One Thursday afternoon at Place Des Arts, I remember hearing the Montreal Symphony playing “Daphne and Chloe” by Maurice Ravel. I walked away shaking my head, muttering to myself, ‘What was that!? I was so deeply moved—bewildered by the sounds I had just heard. It was the moment I discovered to what heights music could draw a man’s soul.”
Gino Vannelli stirs the soul with his voice, his music, and most importantly, his life philosophy and his sincere and gentle demeanour.
Join us this evening as we learn more about the man behind the music, share valuable life lessons, and of course, enjoy great musical performances. This episode will be available On Demand for you to listen to at your leisure if you are unable to join us live.
