Episode #31 - Dimitris Ilias & Maria Diamantis
My guests this week are quite possibly two of my favorite people! Dimitris Ilias and Maria Diamantis are two exceptional opera singers that left behind their careers at some of the world’s most prestigious opera houses to focus on educating and promoting the values of this artform. Through their collaboration with over 25 schools across the Greater Montreal Area they continuously contribute not only to fueling the musical passion of hundreds of children, but offering them the accessibility to this industry’s multiple facets such as concerts, rehearsals, recordings and production. These children have taken part in high-end productions like children’s operas and musicals, multiple audio story books for children, concerts and collaborations with revered composers, singers, songwriters and symphony orchestras. Dimitri and Maria have received many distinctions and awards and their contribution to Quebec society, but more importantly to our youth, is exemplary. I hope you enjoy this conversation!
