The mission of Opera Gala… Opera for a Cause is to provide an outlet for highly skilled Northern Ontario musicians to perform, while simultaneously giving northern audiences a chance to enjoy and learn about this art form rarely seen on so grand a scale in the north. Perhaps most importantly, Opera Gala… Opera for a Cause looks to better the community as all of the highly-trained performers have generously donated their time, knowledge and experience to this worthy cause and all proceeds are donated to charity.
2017 marked our first audience requested “Opera Gala with a Side of Broadway” and it was a great success! Both ticket sales and silent auctions raised thousands for our chosen charities: the Blue Door Soup Kitchen and the Infant Food Bank. Over the last six years the Opera Gala has raised close to $30, 000 for local charities.
New in 2016 was our “Student Bursary Program” which offered six full time music students the opportunity to sing in a professional setting with exceptional performers and an orchestra, a rare opportunity in Northern Ontario. In 2018, six vocal students have made it through the audition process along with a new category of bursary student: Répétiteur pianist. This student pianist will rehearse and perform a limited number of pieces with the group along with the Collaborative Pianist. Congratulations students!
