The COC’s After School Opera Program – Looking Back Over 15 years…

Sherry Squires, ASOP Program Partner, St. Christopher House

Meet Sherry Squires, a proud supporter and program partner of the After School Opera Program (ASOP) and the second individual featured in the special blog series commemorating ASOP’s 15th anniversary celebration on June 13, 2013 in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre.

Sherry hails from Newfoundland (similarly to ASOP Program Leader Dean Burry – more on him soon!). Her East Coast roots cultivated a deep passion for music and her love of the art has kept her singing and playing piano for more than 42 years! She began teaching piano at St. Christopher House in Toronto in 1987, where she took on the role of the music school co-ordinator in 1998. She's played an integral role in the community for over 25 years.
