“Sills is the kind of talent that rarely comes along…Jonelle Sills is a thrill.”
– Stephan Bonfield, Ludwig Van Toronto
A 2019 Dora Award winner, for outstanding performance of an Ensemble in Vivier’s Kopernikus with Against The Grain Theatre.
This past fall Miss Sills embarked on a ten city tour with Against The Grain Theatre’s La Bohème as Mimì.
Past highlights include the roles of Esther in Paola Prestini’s Silent Light with the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Soprano in Vivier’s Kopernikus which Greg Finney of Schmopera stated “The most intriguing singing for me of the evening came from soprano Jonelle Sills. Sills manages to keep her warm, full, elastic tone intact while managing such difficult music.”
