Toronto's International Resource Centre for Performing Artists (IRCPA) founded by Ann Summers Dossena, our long-time member and the 2014 award recipient of the International Citation of Merit was featured in online classical music magazine Ludwig Van with an interview of soprano Adrianne Pieczonka who hosted the latest annual IRCPA event, "Encounter" where ten aspiring singers spend a day with an established artist, who gives vocal and interpretive pointers in the studio, as well as share his/her insights in the ways and means of a career.

The brainchild of Canadian artist agent/arts administrator/impresario Ann Summers, IRCPA is a service organization for musical artists, with the goal of helping young artists to make a successful transition from students to professionals and celebrated its 35th anniversary in October. Among the many singers IRCPA has supported in the past are Adrianne Pieczonka, Isabel Bayrakdarian, and Colin Ainsworth.
