For Episode 5, we welcome back Opera Canada magazine’s editor, Wayne Gooding along with COC Ensemble member, baritone Cameron McPhail and Claire Morley, the COC’s Communications Assistant (and accomplished soprano with the Elmer Iseler Singers!). Hosting once again is the COC’s Adult Programs Manager, Gianmarco Segato.
This week we start things off with a round-table chat about the English National Opera’s “beer ‘n jeans” scheme to bring in the young’uns, and the Opera Canada Corner features Wayne’s summary of the recent “Rubies” (aka the Opera Canada Awards). There’s also an interview with Sandra Gajic, the CEO of Edmonton Opera who chats about the innovative inclusion of two contemporary Canadian works in its 2012-13 season.
