Scat Singing Workshop @ Culture Days

Parkdale Library, 1303 Queen Street West, Toronto

Ori Dagan grew up studying classical piano and upon hearing Ella Fitzgerald’s genius scat solos, decided to devote his life to jazz music. He began taking vocal lessons in his late teens and spent a decade studying voice formally at both York University (BFA 2007) where he studied jazz vocals and classical voice, and later at Humber College where he honed his skills as an improviser and songwriter. As an educator, Ori enjoys teaching privately and has had the pleasure of working with a variety of age groups, including workshops at elementary schools, universities and community centres. His philosophy is to expose each student to the inherent joy of jazz improvisation.

Ori Dagan was recently featured on blogTO as one of the Top 10 Singing Lessons in Toronto.

Workshop is from 12-1pm and is FREE!

SUNDAY CABARET SERIES @120 DINER PRESS RELEASE: 120 Diner, one of the city’s finest jazz listening rooms, today announced that it is launching a new cabaret series on the evening of Sunday October 16th . Ori Dagan, the talented young performer and Program Director for the Diner, has asked four of the city’s finest theatre and concert producers to put together a season of cabaret attractions that will run through until Sunday December 18th. Cabaret is one of the great, and often unsung, art forms. In its essence it features a singer telling stories, usually with just a piano, sometimes with one or more sidemen. Toronto is blessed with having some of the world’s prime exponents of this genre. They deserve far more opportunities to demonstrate their unique gifts, which is why this new opportunity at 120 Bistro is so welcome. The Co-Curators of Cabaret at 120 are: David Warrack, the distinguished Canadian performer/composer/conductor/producer; Jeni Walls, well-known singer-actress and curator of the SINGular Sensation Open Mic at Statler’s; Derrick Chua, veteran independent theatre producer and former Chair of the Toronto Fringe Festival; and Robert Missen, proprietor of The Bobolink Agency, one of the country’s finest performing arts management companies and curator of the Green Door Cabaret series at Lower Ossington Theatre. Together they have fashioned an amazing roster of cabaret artists and attractions, featuring both long established artists, such as Judith Lander, George Masswohl and Theresa Tova and newcomers such as Jeremy Carver-James and Lauren and Meredith Busteed. There will be two shows each Sunday night, one at 6 pm and one at 8:30. Each show will have two sets of approximately forty-five minutes’ duration. The restaurant has won much acclaim for its fine cuisine and its well- stocked bar. Cover charge for each show is $20. Advance orders can be made by calling 416-792-7725 or text 416-706- 4237
