Jennie Such - Vocal

As a member of the voice faculty at Wilfrid Laurier University and as the Singing Coach at the Stratford Festival of Canada, Jennie divides her time between classical music and musical theatre. She has witnessed many parallels between the art of the classical actor and the classical singer and is interested in combining ideas about text, sound, physicality and authenticity from these complementary worlds.


Jennie is an alumna of the Royal College of Music (U.K.), The Canadian Opera Company Ensemble and the Vancouver Opera Touring Ensemble. As a soloist she has performed nationally and internationally in opera, oratorio and recital. For further information, please visit her website at


Jennie’s first voice coaching contract was with the Canadian Company of Billy Elliot (Mirvish 2011). This proved to be the perfect “next step” as an artist transitioning into the vocation of teaching work.


Other coaching credits include The Hockey Sweater which was presented at the National Arts Centre in 2018. Jennie is currently in her tenth season as a member of the Artistic Company at the Stratford Festival, and joins the Birmingham Conservatory at the Stratford Festival for her seventh season in 2023

Marion Miller - Piano

Marion Miller began piano at 4, was teaching at 12, and entered the University of Western Ontario at 16 with her ARCT certificate, graduating with a Master’s degree in piano performance and the President’s Gold Medal for academic excellence. At 18 she was on faculty at the Banff School of Fine Arts. Canada Council grants later enabled her to study in Paris with the great Marcel Ciampi. 


Always principally a classical artist, she has nevertheless covered the full musical gamut, from playing in a professional swing band during university to performing with symphony orchestras in Canada and the U.S., to composing for musical theatre. She has taught in university, conservatory and festival settings, and maintains a consistently full schedule of private piano students, from young beginners to accomplished adults, including other teachers — even during the temporary move to online teaching during Covid. 


She has played Chopin on CBC Radio, vaudeville tunes at a summer playhouse, and has been musical director of London’s Grand Theatre and pianist for its symphony orchestra. International artists with whom she has appeared range from Harry Belafonte to Jann Arden to opera’s Michael Schade. Renowned orchestra leader Mitch Miller once teasingly proposed marriage: “We wouldn’t even have to change the initials on the towels.”
