Hey! I’m Kyle Golemba and I’m excited to be a blogger for Show Choir Canada.
So, where to start?
To give you a quick history, I started acting in 1992 as a Mexican Jumping Bean in a production of Jack and the Beanstalk. Humble beginnings, perhaps, but everyone’s gotta start somewhere. I did drama all my life and eventually went to Sheridan College in Oakville, ON to pursue my dream of acting in musicals. After three years there, I moved to Toronto and was let out into the wild world of auditioning. It’s been about five years since I graduated and I am proud to say I’ve worked all over Canada in everything from plays to musicals to TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences) to movie musicals and TV shows. I’ve been a member of the company at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival for three seasons and am going to be a part of the 2011 season in Jesus Christ Superstar and The Grapes of Wrath.I’m proud to be a part of Show Choir Canada because I grew up singing in choirs. Any choir that would have me, I was there! I sang in church choirs, school choirs, chamber choirs, jazz chorus, assembly band, and even formed an octet with a group of friends in grade twelve called Eight Geeks Singing. After I left high school, I became a choral scholar at St. Jude’s Anglican Church in Oakville: singing in the choir to help pay for school! Choirs have been a huge part of my life and have helped me on the path to the career I always dreamed of having.

And, most importantly, I want you to ask me questions! What would you like to know more about singing, the business, Stratford, musicals, or me? I’m going to be writing blogs for SCC a few times a month, so I’d love to know what you’d like to hear about. Shoot me a line and I’ll get writing.
‘Til then: happy singing!
