Welcome Stacy Smith to the Youth Arts Immersion Program!

Stacy Smith HeadshotIf Stacy Smith looks familiar, chance are you have seen her in such television productions as Jesse Stone (featuring Tom Selleck), Rookie Blue and Marion Bridge, to name just a few!  And now you will be able to see her in Exeter Ontario as the newest addition to the Bach Festival Youth Arts Immersion Team!

Stacy is not only a stage and screen performer, she also has a tremendous background in working with young people in the arts, making her an ideal addition to the Festival Youth Arts program. Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Ms. Smith received her B.A. in Theatre from Dalhousie University, and studied voice at the Maritime Conservatory of Music.

Stacy’s  15 years of working with young people includes teaching her own ‘Let’s Create a Play’ classes in New Glasgow, instructing numerous theatrical workshops and summer camps for several theatre companies, and teaching students at the Nova Scotia High School Drama Festival. Stacy was also the Acting instructor for Halifax’s Neptune Theatre’s Pre-Professional Training Program for which she created the class curriculum.

Having relocated to Ontario in 2011, Stacy now instructs and directs with Stratford Playmakers Theatre School, as well as organizing and directing The Ghosts of Stratford Walking Tours. Last spring, Stacy created ‘The Kale Show’ for The Foundation for Education. The show introduced the clown characters Kale and Big Chip, touring elementary schools and creating awareness about the importance of healthy eating habits at an early age.
The Bach Festival is delighted to welcome the talented Stacy Smith to the Youth Arts Immersion Program. Why not consider joining us?

 A phenomenal week of music making, friendship, fun-filled activities, culminating in a Final Concert promises to give each young person involved an extraordinary experience with music.

The Bach Music Festival of Canada Children’s and Youth (Unchanged Voices) is Open to girls and boys ages 9 – 18 (unchanged voices).  To best prepare you for the Festival week, we will be holding rehearsals in the few weeks prior to the Festival, to allow you an opportunity to learn your music and meet some of your fellow choristers. This will enable our first rehearsal to be all about singing!

They look forward to assisting the choir and the conductors with rehearsals, lunch and our extra activities. Images from our 2011 Youth Program can be found at: www.karenbrownphotography.com.
