Kyra Millan is happiest teaching singing and creating quirky shows that allow her to blend education and performance, as her unique career has been a balance of both. Kyra embarked last year on her first Ontario tour of her original show "Millan & Faye Present: The Opera!" to theatres including The Four Seasons Centre, Richmond Hill Performing Arts Centre, Elora Music Festival, Welland Port Colborne Concert Association, and Ottawa's International Chamber Music Festival, with her music duo partner, Christina Faye.
Kyra's work in teaching and in arts education began 20 years ago, facilitating opera workshops for the Canadian Opera Company, as well as being musical director of their Summer Youth Intensive training program. As an Arts educator, she regularly facilitates workshops and training for the Royal Conservatory of Music, Opera Atelier, Canadian Opera Company, Workman Arts (CAMH), Abilities Arts, Soundstreams Canada and TIFF. She coaches aspiring singers and professionals in her private studio in Toronto, and has been an adjudicator for both provincial and local music festivals. As a voice coach for actors, Kyra has worked on professional productions in Canada for companies such as Canadian Stage, Stage West, Young People's Theatre and the National Arts Centre, as well as for international touring productions. Kyra lives with her family in Toronto's west end.
