Bio: Amanda Brunk, MusBacPerf (WLU)
A proud member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, Amanda Brunk is a crossover
voice teacher with a special interest in vocal health and rehabilitation. Her curiosity for the mechanics
of singing and speech has taken her across North America to learn from cutting-edge specialists in vocal
pedagogy. Amanda is a member of the Canadian Music Festival Adjudicators Association and adjudicates
regionally and provincially for classical, choral, pop and musical theatre categories. She is a published
author for the NATS Journal of Singing.
Amanda is the founder and artistic director of The Singer's Theatre, a Broadway World Toronto
winner for Best Youth Theatre Production in 2011. She has directed the music for over 40 musicals,
including the Canadian premiere of Broadway's A Tale Of Two Cities. She has also served as vocal director
for various cruise lines. Amanda is regularly invited to give workshops and presentations, most recently
having taken a team to teach musical theatre in Beijing, China.
Since taking on the position of conductor of The Grand Philharmonic Youth Choir, Amanda has
led the choir to win gold medals nationally and internationally.
Amanda’s voice students have performed as members of the company at The Stratford
Shakespeare Festival of Canada, on North American tours and in Broadway shows. Others have gone on to

theatre in Canada. She is currently teaching Contemporary Commercial Music as a member of the voice
