Meet Kyle, one of our new stars of the bass section! Kyle's new to ENCORE, but certainly not to music - he's been performing, from karaoke to as the lead in musicals, since he was five! Kyle joins many of his family members in Youth Singers of Calgary this year, and we're lucky to have him!

What are your favourite Calgary restaurants?
State and Main, NAM Vietnamese Kitchen, Chianti Cafe and Restaurant and Gus's Cafe & Pizzeria for pizza!
What do you do for a living?
I work in radio broadcasting, public address announcing, and also for an e-commerce company.
What's your most memorable performance experience?
My most memorable experience would be playing Joseph in a rendition of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat back in 1993.
What was your childhood career aspiration?
While growing up, I always wanted a career that would involve using my voice in some way whether it was in reporting, cartoon voice over, impersonations, singing or announcing.
What's your favourite ENCORE repertoire this year?
My favourite pieces of music that we've worked on this year include Away from the Roll of the Sea, Everything I Do, and the Hockey Song!

Vi GerbrandtI would have loved to be present in this. I traveled with a high school choir in Swift Current for grade 12 - after that, was a 'wedding singer' for a few friends. Now - my daughter is an amazing singer/songwriter musician. You will see her busking (and at private shows) when through Calgary - her beats, voice on many albums released from Calgary, after having been awarded 4th in High School debate. I was present for some former Youth Singers, during their difficult high school years. Music is good for everyone. Opportunities are also good for everyone. There are many multi ages events that should and could happen. Good for doing this, for those who participated.
