Bianca Pittoors, a French-Canadian from Winnipeg, Manitoba, grew up in a family that offered her a rich variety of musical, cultural and artistic experiences. As a teenager, Bianca headed East and began to pursue with passion and dedication her dreams of forging a singing career. Many years later She is now a seasoned and polished performer. Her dynamic approach to music incorporates her love of mainstream and traditional jazz along with contemporary influences that range from Sting to Charles Aznavour and Burt Bacharach. Always passionately dedicated to the idea of artistic growth, Bianca has reinvented herself over the years, developing along the way a dynamic and tuneful “retro jazz” repertoire. Bianca sees music as an ongoing and never ending educational, and spiritual, process. “When I’m onstage, I just know that I can surrender myself. All the practice and study that has come before is put to the service of something greater. Singing for an audience is a spiritual experience for me”.
Over the course of her career, Bianca has had wonderful opportunities to study and work with some of the great names in Jazz: in Montreal with Ranee Lee; at the Banff Centre for the Arts with Sheila Jordan, and also with Kenny Werner and Jay Clayton.
