Canadian Art Song Project in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre

Happy New Year! We're ringing in 2015 with concerts that celebrate the fresh, the new and the exciting this January. Whether it's the world premiere of a new work, exciting young artists or an emerging genre that you're hearing about for the first time, there is something for everyone this month in the Free Concert Series. But don't worry, there's still room for old favourites!

Artist Basics: Jennifer Holloway

With the new year comes new talent to the COC, including American mezzo-soprano Jennifer Holloway's company debut! Jennifer is known across the globe for her “nuanced dramatic impulses” and a “voice that is liquid, lambent, and lit from within.”

Broadsheet Music: A Year in Review


Mark down 2014 as the year the Canadian Opera Company put out an album with Broken Social Scene and Fucked Up. No, really. Broadsheet Music: A Year in Review is a collaborative effort between the The Globe and Mail, renowned record label Arts & Crafts, and the COC to create a diverse mix of songs based on the big issues and stories that affected the lives of Canadians this past year. These songs are collected in a free album featuring original songs created by diverse artists including celebrated indie collective Broken Social Scene, Polaris Music Prize winning hardcore punk band Fucked Up, Calgary’s Reuben And The Dark, and songstress Tamara Williamson, among others.
