National Philanthropy Day 2017

"Thank you for helping us create opera that explores the rich possibilities of this art form in the 21st century. The mosaic of voices, perspectives, and extraordinary storytelling on our stage is a true testament to the commitment of our supporters—thank you!"

- Alexander Neef, General Director

"I am so grateful for the generosity of our COC donors. Your support allowed me to work as music staff on The Elixir of Love, prepare art song recitals for the Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre, and even take harpsichord lessons! The varied experience as an Ensemble Studio member is invaluable."

- Rachael Kerr, Ensemble Studio Pianist and Intern Coach

"Thank you for providing the opportunity for children to discover the magic of music and operatic storytelling. Whether they are writing librettos featuring haunted pianos, building a giant cheesecake, or singing about chocolate factories, every day young people are finding their creative voice thanks to you."

- Bryna Berezowska, Children, Youth, & Family Programs Manager

"Thanks to donor support, the COC is able to throw the doors of the Four Seasons Centre wide open to all of us for their glorious and longstanding noon hour concert series. It is always a huge pleasure to perform in the gorgeous Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre, against the backdrop of the daily life of our city, for an audience with whom I can meet eyes!"

- Peggy Baker, Dancer, Choreographer, and Artistic Director of Peggy Baker Dance Projects
