Kelly Zimba joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as Principal Flute in 2017. Previously a flute fellow at the New World Symphony, she has performed with the Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Palm Beach Symphony Orchestras, and was a two-time fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center. As a soloist, chamber, and orchestral musician, Ms. Zimba has performed around the world in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Beijing’s National Centre for the Performing Arts, Royal Albert Hall, and the Teatro del Lago in Frutillar, Chile. She was featured on the cover of Flute Talk Magazine in October 2017.

In addition to performing, Kelly has served on the faculty of the Sitka Fine Arts Camp in Sitka, Alaska, where she was an artist-in-residence in January 2018. She also taught instrumental music at Belvoir Terrace in Lenox, Massachusetts, in addition to teaching privately across the United States.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kelly completed her graduate studies at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, and received bachelor’s degrees in flute performance and music education from the University of Michigan. She is greatly indebted to all of her teachers, most especially Leone Buyse and Amy Porter.

With a voice that has been described as a “powerful demonstration of musical artistry wed to superb technique”, soprano Stacie Dunlop is an avid performer of contemporary opera, orchestral and chamber music. Highly involved in the creation of new music, Stacie has commissioned works from Canadian composers R. Murray Schafer, Harry Freedman, Peter-Anthony Togni, Juhan Puhm, Clark Ross, Scott Godin, Tawnie Olson and Aaron Gervais. Recent performances include a cross-Canada tour of Kurtág’s Kafka Fragments, Peter Maxwell-Davies’ Miss Donnithorne’s Maggot, Scott Good’s The Hands of Orlac, music of Mexican and Canadian composers in Poland in 2016 & 2017, Balancing on the Edge in November 2016 and a workshop of The Harvester/Erwartung project in January 2017. Future engagements include a new work by Abigail Richardson-Schulte with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra in 2019. Ms. Dunlop can be heard on the Centrediscs label in My Life in Widening Circles and Hymns of Heaven and Earth.
