ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kira Braun, Soprano, is a classically trained singer from the Toronto, Canada area. She began singing at an early age, as part of the Canadian Children's Opera Chorus, and has since performed with many choirs, both semi-professional and church choirs. Kira enjoys performing many genres of music, including Opera, Jazz & Blues, Show tunes, Lieder, and Art Songs.

Kira is married to a Greek man and has been made to feel so welcomed by his family, that she wanted to learn some Greek music to perform for them. She stumbled across Ravel's 5 Greek Folksongs and first performed the song cycle for Aris's family in June of 2013, at a Fundraiser Recital she held, to benefit the Princess Margaret's 60km Weekend Walk to end Women's Cancers.

She has competed in the Kiwanis Music Festival and recently performed her first Operatic role as "Frasquita" in a production of Carmen, with Toronto City Opera. Her voice has been described as having "clarity & freshness".

By day, Kira owns her own business as a consultant in the field of Facility Management, aptly named Libretto FM.

Peter Krochak is a brilliant and talented pianist. He holds a degree in music and has been performing for several years as a pianist and also a singer, with the Forte Men's Choir of Toronto. His musical gifts of interpretation and timing make him a joy to work with.

By day, Peter owns his own business as an Immigration Lawyer.

Kira and Peter knew of each other in high school, and at one time shared the same voice teacher. They met again years later and have formed a partnership that is truly based on the love of making music and sharing that love with their friends and family.
