Opera Club

Founded in 2011, the Opera Club is the COC’s exclusive membership program for young professionals.  The program seeks to connect the COC with the next generation of arts supporters and engage them with all aspects of opera.  The membership cultivated to date is an exciting network of professionals from across the arts, media, and business communities who are passionate about supporting opera and exploring its intersection with other art forms in Toronto.
