Jimmy Kansau, Vocal Director
With a lifelong fascination of the human voice, JIMMY KANSAU offers more than two decades of teaching, singing, and performing experience. He has appeared as a soloist and chorus member in over 45 operas and 10 oratorios in South America, Europe, and the United States, including 15 performances with San Francisco Opera since 2005. Reviewed as an "unusually strong-voiced tenor" who "shows great sensitivity," Kansau possesses vocal flexibility and a range of experience spanning from Latin American music to opera halls and venues including Unesco, (Paris, France), Notre Dame (Paris, France), Roman Amphitheater (Madrid, Spain) Teatro Tulio Febres Cordero (Mérida, Venezuela), Davies Symphony Hall (SF), Kimmel Center, (Philadelphia), War Memorial Opera House (SF), Saint Nicholas Monaco Cathedral (Monaco), and the United States Capitol (Washington, D.C.). With early beginnings in popular and sacred music, Kansau credits much of his success in opera and oratorio to the San Francisco Conservatory, where he studied with Sylvia Anderson and was coached by Kahtryn Cathcart and Willene Gunn.
Kansau explains his early exposure to formal training as "a whole new world of factors … language, composition, style, vocal fach, tessitura, interpretation, and movement. Kansau continued his studies with Cornelious Reid, Giovanni Regiolli, Danielle Orlando and Kathryn Cathcart.
...
Currently, Kansau appears in collaborations with the San Francisco Boys Chorus, where he also fulfills the role of Director of Vocal Training for the prestigious 60-year-old institution.
