#FREPS: COC Ensemble Studio Competition

Shine Bright like a Diamond! – The Canadian Opera Company is back for their annual Ensemble Studio Competition on November 1st, 2017. This show brings together young Canadian talent from around the country who will compete for a chance to win prizes and an exclusive spot in the COC’s Ensemble Studio program. The competition will serve as the sole fundraiser for this program, a place where artists are given the creative means to thrive and express their artistic visions in Canada’s ever-evolving art culture.

In an extraordinary atmosphere, the Four Seasons will host a cocktail reception commencing at 5:30pm where spectators and artists alike will mingle and celebrate until being ushered an hour later into the R. Fraser Elliot Hall.  Together, we will watch a thrilling and chilling show of sheer talent and vocal range that will have you singing in the shower for days. A Gala dinner will culminate the evening with the delicious creations of Nota Bene’s Owner and Chef David Lee.
