Sally Dibblee, soprano

Captivating opera audiences and critics alike since her Canadian Opera Company mainstage debuts in the roles of Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi and Musetta in La Bohème, soprano Sally Dibblee has performed the title roles in Madama Butterfly and Lucia di Lammermoor with Calgary Opera, Elizabetta in Maria Stuarda with Pacific Opera Victoria, Mimi in La Bohème with Arizona Opera, Liu in Turandot with Kentucky Opera and the Canadian premiere of John Adams’ Nixon in China playing Pat Nixon with Vancouver Opera, to name a few. She has been a featured soloist with the Toronto Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic, Symphony New Brunswick, and the Mineria Symphony in Mexico, among others.

Sally made her theatre debut with St. Andrews Summer Theatre Company playing the role of notoriously flawed singer Florence Foster Jenkins in the hilarious Souvenir. Upcoming is a performance in the title role of Adrianna Lecouvreur with Opera in Concert in Toronto. Sally will sing with Symphony NB in December with Guest Conductor Kevin Mallon.

A former faculty member of Mount Allison University, Sally is in demand as a voice teacher, Masterclass lecturer and adjudicator. She is the conductor of the Fredericton Ladies Choir.

Nadia Francavilla, violon

Nadia Francavilla, Montreal-born violinist and music educator, brings a collaborative spirit, a passion for new music, and a distinctly European sensibility to her performing and teaching work.

A McGill University graduate, she trained under Mauricio Fuks, Raphael Druian and Joseph Silverstein. Her orchestral background includes l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and Les Violons du Roy, and she spent several years with Quatuor Arthur-LeBlanc and Quatuor Bozzini, producing recordings and touring in North America, Europe, and Japan. At present, she performs most often with Motion2, Atlantica, and Moineaux D’Entendre, exploring classical and contemporary works in mixed chamber music settings.

Ms. Francavilla’s driving interest in new music has led her to commission and premiere new works from both Canadian and international composers. She is currently musician-in-residence at the University of New Brunswick where she has worked on solo projects, given masterclasses and lectures, and integrated herself into the Fredericton music scene. Ms. Francavilla is also a violin teacher at the Mount Allison University and at the Université de Moncton.

Formed in 2011, the New Brunswick-based woodwind quintet Ventus Machina has quickly become a major player on Canada’s east coast classical music scene. Their flexible and dynamic style of performance—often presenting themed programs that at once engage, entertain, and educate—continues to attract and delight increasingly diverse audiences. Classically based and uncompromising in artistic quality, Ventus Machina makes regular excursions into other genres including jazz, opera, Latin and pop, challenging themselves and surprising their audiences.

Nous reconnaissons respectueusement que la terre sur laquelle nous nous réunissons pour ce concert est le territoire traditionnel sans cession des peuples Wolastoqiyik (Malécites) et Mi’kmaq. Ce territoire est régi par les «Traités de paix et d'amitié» que les Wolastoqiyik (Malécites) et les peuples Mi'kmaq ont signé pour la première fois avec la Couronne britannique en 1725. Les traités ne traitaient pas de la cession de terres et de ressources mais étaient en réalité reconnus Wolastoqiyik (Malécites) et établi les règles de ce qui devait être une relation continue entre les nations.
