FUNDRAISING

AS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATION, YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS TO THE HIGHLANDS OPERA STUDIO ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. PLEASE CONSIDER ATTENDING ONE OF OUR FUNDRAISING CONCERT EVENTS OR MAKING A GIFT THROUGH CANADA HELPS AS A WAY OF SUPPORTING OUR OPERATIC TRAINING PROGRAM

 

Opera is an art form that we both have devoted our lives to and one that we continue to support in every way we can. Seven years ago we decided to start a program in the beautiful Haliburton Highlands (2 1/2 hours north of Toronto) for very advanced emerging operatic artists in which we would concentrate not only on the goals of performance excellence, but also on networking and potential employment opportunities for young singers. We also felt that at this level, these young artists should no longer be expected to pay for a summer program, and, therefore, all Canadian artists attending the month-long intensive program are on full scholarship. This limited number of participants is chosen through a rigorous cross-Canada (and NYC) audition tour during which we listen to on average close to 200 applicants. Out of those we choose on average 15 highly qualified participants.

The community of the Haliburton Highlands and the extended areas of Muskoka, Kawartha Lakes, and Bancroft, have welcomed us into the region.  Since our inaugural year in 2007 we have focused on providing community interaction and audience education through pre-performance chats, run-out concerts, and ‘Random Acts of Opera’, short concerts in local venues. In 2011 we established the Highlands Opera Community School in which we offer voice lessons, masterclasses, the opportunity to observe the Opera Studio participants, and potential involvement in one or the other of our staged productions.

See you at the opera!
