The Gala

Opera Gala… Opera for a Cause is a set of annual benefit concerts that have raised tens of thousands of dollars for community charities. Representing the best of Northern Ontario talent, the performances highlight 20 skilled vocalists and chamber orchestra and also allow bursary students to experience live performance of Opera and Broadway to help further their artistic endeavours.  Over the last eight years, vocalists, musicians and those who volunteered their services to create the elegance of these amazing performances, have built a legacy of exceptional music, true friendship and extraordinary performances!

Thank you so much for all who helped bring the 2018 and previous performances to life – from Jacaranda Events event planning and Cambrian College music students for front-of-house duties, to associates who helped with everything from lighting, overhead projection, sponsorship generation and the silent auction – we love you!

Please see below for highlights from our 2018 performances. A special thank you to Craig Dokis for the excellent photography – so very much appreciated. (All photos courtesy of Dokis Photography, 2018 Opera Gala photography sponsor.)
