Snippets of Stellavision-The 3D World of Stella Walker

Stella joins the Yiddish Vinkl to present snippets of her upcoming one-woman show “Stellavision-The 3D World of Stella Walker”, a musical comedy based on her life. The play is written and performed by Stella Walker, directed by John Mitchell, with material by Andy Jones. Stella will perform scenes from the show and sing her original songs, accompanying herself on the piano. A Q and A follows. We’ll discuss the evolution of this new comedy. She’ll sing a Yiddish song too, for good measure!

Stella Walker is a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist. She’s a singer, writer, performer, producer, painter, director, and voice coach. Her work as a writer and performer has been broadcast nationally on the Comedy Network, Women's Television Network, CBC, CTV, and Bravo! Singing in Yiddish, she has appeared with North America's best Klezmer musicians and premiered works by Srul Irving Glick, Helen Greenberg and Beyle Schaechter Gottesman. Stella was a member of the professional choir at Beth Sholom Synagogue for a decade. She studied cantorial music with Cantor Maissner at Holy Blossom Temple and Cantor David Rosen at Beth Radom where she had an opportunity to lead services. She has studied and taught the Cree language, which has absolutely nothing in common with Yiddish! Stella is a prolific painter and her artwork is widely collected.
