After graduating from the Sheridan Music Theatre Programme, Tanya studied classically with Henriette Asch in Toronto and had the opportunity to perform many of the ‘pant’ roles – workshop performances included Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro, Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus, and Hansel in Hansel and Gretel.
She has performed on stage in musicals for many years, most recently as Marilla in Anne of Green Gables. Favourite roles include Peter (Peter Pan), Adelaide (Guys and Dolls) and Eva Peron (Evita). She is also a member of the vocal trio, The Lemmon Sisters.
Tanya has been a vocalist with many big bands and currently sings with The Wintergarten Orchestra. An unexpected, little known fact about Tanya is that she was a uniformed officer with the Ontario Provincial Police.
