SINGERS

Ericka Hunter

Ottawa, Canada native Ericka Hunter has been studying and performing since the age of three. Hunter’s parents taught her to embrace her Canadian and Chinese roots while growing up as the middle child, with music becoming an integral part of her development.

Upon graduating high school, Hunter moved to New York City where she performed as one of the world famous Radio City Rockettes. Pushing her career in theatre forward, Hunter then joined Broadway classics such as: The Lion King, Flower Drum Song, 42nd Street, and most recently, Rock of Ages, where she has performed the leading role of Sherrie in over 50 performances. Her Broadway experience has led Hunter to perform alongside such artists as Rihanna, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, and Bret Michaels with Poison.

When not engaging audiences on Broadway, Hunter writes and records music alongside Jean Baptiste (“Boom Boom Pow” – Black Eyed Peas) and Kuk Harrell (Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” / Rihanna’s “Umbrella“). Currently, Hunter is working on recording her debut album, which is expected to be released next spring, with the help of her friends The Movement (“One Time” – Justin Bieber) and famed disc jockeys, Morgan Nagoya and DJ Oriska.

Nathan Haller

Nathan Haller was born in Ottawa and raised in the community of Stittsville in the city’s west end.  His love of music was evident at a very young age.  By the age of 12 he was performing with Orpheus Musical Theatre Co. (Rags, Oliver, Annie Get Your Gun, The Spirit of Orpheus, and A Christmas Carol). His love of opera was realized when, at 14, he performed at the NAC with Opera Lyra in Romeo and Juliet and in subsequent operas La Traviata, Le Nozzi de Figaro and Mignon. His voice teacher, Judith Vachon, encouraged him during his formative years.

After graduating high school, he was accepted into the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City where he is presently completing his Bachelor of Music degree in Voice this year.  His vocal teacher Edith Wiens, a Grammy award winner, has cultivated Nathan’s love of the opera and classical music.  Haller has been coached by Ken Noda, assistant director to the renowned conductor James Levine and has performed in master classes for recording artist Malcolm Martineau and Eytan Pessen, the artistic director of the Semperoper opera house in Dresden, Germany.

While in New York, Haller has been seen performing in the New York Festival of Song’s “Invitation to the Dance” and “Operettas” editions directed by Steven Blier, a Grammy award recipient and one of his coaches. He has also performed in several Juilliard operas and concerts in German, Italian, French and English.

This past summer after successfully auditioning as one of fourteen performers from Canada, Europe, The United Kingdom, and The United States for the International Meistersinger Academy program, Haller travelled to Germany where he performed with the Munich Radio Orchestra and was part of numerous concerts in Neumarkt, and Dresden under the direction of conductors Maestro Helmut Rilling and Maestro Hoftsetter.  The newspaper reviews described him as “a brilliant tenor” and “a lyric tenor with a rarity who had a beautifully guided voice that the market longs for”.  He was offered a contract with the Frankfurt Opera house upon completion of his studies.  Haller plans to pursue a Masters Degree in Music this September.
