Ann Summers Dossena, who managed the careers of George Shirley, Shirley Love and Louis Quilico, Cuarteto Latinoamericano, Claremont String Quartet, and most recently pianist Christina Petrowska Quilico, pianist Haiou Zhang and clarinetist Kornel Wolak, is giving up her agency. Extracted press release below.
Summers Dossena and the IRCPA Board of Directors will be able to move forward with IRCPA projects. Chief among them is to fundraise and acquire space to accommodate libraries of donated scores, mentor artists one on one and in groups, hold round-table discussions exchanging ideas and challenges, and to continue the workshops Career Moves
and Encounters with Employers.
These workshops provide, amongst other things, a place for artists to try out new directions for advice, without risk to their career. Such celebrated Canadian singers as sopranos Adrianne Pieczonka and Isabel Bayrakdarian, and tenor Colin Ainsworth were helped bythe IRCPA. More information is at www.ircpa.net
