MUSICAL LIFEA Choral Life Q&Afeaturing William Woloschukcompiled and edited by mJ BuellWhat was your first ever choral experience?I grew up in Sudbury, Ontario. Singing came naturally to me at avery early age. My family sang at holiday gatherings along with theirguests. Our community sang at wedding receptions always sporadicallybreaking into 4-6 part harmony with ease. Strongly based onheritage and ceremonial traditions Our Eastern Rite faith stipulates acappella format use to all its Liturgies. It was not uncommon toattend Sunday services accompanied by angelic harmonies from composerDmytro Bortniansky. I officially joined the local UkrainianFolk Choir - Dnipro, under the direction of Ollia Rohatyn at the ageof 14. This 60-voice choir travelled widely, evrywhere from areas asremote as Val d'Or to international destinations like Sao Paolo andBuenos Aires. At the age of 16, I was asked to lead our localUkrainian Catholic church choir.What choirs have you sung with?I have fond memories of singing in the principal Ukrainian churchchoir on la Rue du Bae when I lived in Paris and studied at theSorbonne. In Canada, I gravitated towards singing in several community-baseda cappella church choirs. During my undergraduatestudies in Montreal, the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral contacted meto explore the opportunity of leading their SO-voice cathedral choir.While I was initially apprehensive, these years were, to date, someof my best choral experiences. The cathedral choir travelled throughoutOntario, the U.S. and Ukraine. It was at this juncture that I decidedthat I needed to find a healthy balance between pursuing mycorporate career and developing my love for choral music.Are you currently with a choir?Leaving Montreal for a career in the US, I stumbled upon an opportunityto direct the South Florida Men's Chorus while I worked witha Canadian business enterprise in Fort Lauderdale. After three yearsin the US , I moved to Toronto to be with my family. However,before I re-entered the corporate world, I took the time to completemy graduate studies in choral directing at the University of Toronto.Upon graduating, I "harmonized" my corporate life with my choraldirecting pursuits by establishing Counterpoint Chorale. In addition,I am privileged to have also assumed the responsibility of ArtisticDirector for the Toronto Welsh Men's Voice Choir.Where does your choral singing fit into other aspects of your life?I see a link between my two careers. As a corporate motivator for anational corporation, I develop and manage working relationships~QQllllll#IHNIQ,UQPI~? f~ 314 Churchill Ave ~~ Toronto, Ontario I~ M2R 1E7 Canada f~ Tel: 416-224-1956 ~~ Fax: 416-224-2964 I~ MIKROKOSMOS I~ Ifp~ I: We buy your ~~ f: classical LP ~~ vBOSLEYREAL ESTATEBOSLEY :::tEAL ESTATE L Tt,., REAL TO P.with my clients to get them toperform at their highest potential.Similarly, I rely on the quality ofmy rapport with my singers andmusicians to bring them to thepoint where they give their bestperformances. In both cases, theresults are built on trust, respectand shared goalsWhat kind of concerts to you liketo attend? How often?I enjoy attending various religiousceremonies. On a given weekendyou can find me attending aPortuguese Mass, on the next I'lltravel to listen to a Synagoguechoir. I find that with such aplethora of cultures in our midst,our religious institutions offer uschoral experiences often at a very high calibre ... and for virtually nocost.How do you feel about "choralography"?I grappled with this subject matter and my choristers on manyoccasions. Choralography, or song performance with motion/movement was first introduced to me by Professor RodneyEichenburger of Florida State University. At his annual choralworkshops, he promotes the benefits of movement . When usedappropriately, choralography can be an effective and high impactenhancement to what can sometimes be a mundane and redundantperformance. Some notable examples I've seen are: Boys Choir ofHarlem and their rendition of the Haitian Broom Dance; Ukraine'sVydubychi Chamber Choir; and my favourite on-line example:Turtle Creek Chorale's stage performance of Handel's HallelujahChorus. on the difference between paid and unpaid choralopportunities?I firmly believe that to foster a "learning and development" choralexperience, you must invest in your product. Paid lead singersenhance the choral experience for those less experienced. As abusinessperson, I have found that you must invest in the brand todistinguish yourself in Toronto's robust choral community. Iembrace the notion of hiring choral graduates to help develop mysingers. They, in turn, get real life experience that will help themgrow in their chosen profession - it's a win-win.A Choral Life Q & A invites you to talk about your choir and where it fitsinto your musical life.
