New PARMA Artist: Mel Braun

PARMA is pleased to welcome baritone Mel Braun to our roster of artists. Mel will be joining PARMA artist Laura Loewen (of the Harrington/Loewen Duo) to release an album called BY THE RED on Big Round Records.

BY THE RED is a collection of traditional Canadian folk songs featuring piano, baritone, mandolin, percussion, and electric bass. 
Mel has earned attention and acclaim throughout Canada for his versatility as a singer, performing a broad range of music from baroque repertoire to premiering new works, to folk and rock.

Mel is the head of the Vocal Program at the Desautels Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. In addition, he maintains an active schedule as an educator and clinician, collaborating with a number of music education initiatives including the Annual Opera Theater School Tour, the Professor Bach Project, and the Contemporary Opera Lab.

BY THE RED will be released on Big Round Records in 2015. In the meantime, stay tuned for updates on the Big Round debut from Mel and Laura’s longtime musical partnership.
