Workshops / Master Classes

Our academy is committed to becoming a leader in arts education.

To achieve this goal we are committed to offering free workshops and master classes for area students to gain unique experiences with arts industry professionals from across the G.T.A.

Participation in these classes will enhance a student’s portfolio when applying to post-secondary arts programs and will also expose them to the types of activities we offer at BRAA.


Stay tuned for exciting new workshops for 2021!

Chris Thornborrow

Chris Thornborrow’s masterclass is an introduction to music composition in a group setting. Through a series of activities that include listening, improvisation, and performance, we will develop new sounds together and shape those into an original piece of music, which we will then perform. Bring your instruments, your voice, and your ideas! Whether you’ve written a symphony, or never written a song in your life, all are welcome!

“Did you know that 3.5 million Canadians sing in a choir and three times more children under the 18 sing choir than play hockey (Choral Canada Census, 2017)? In this workshop with Elise Naccarato and Myriad, experience what it means to sing in a choir and combine many-voiced and hearts to sing as one voice. In this 45 min rehearsal attendees will experience a brief warm-up, learning of a short piece and mini performance.”
