Stories & Testimonials

Richard Margison

“The CCOC is a real national musical treasure...  this company gives young people an opportunity to be a part of a wonderful musical tradition.  I am very proud of what a bright musical light they are in the current fabric of this great country.  Keep making music!!!”


Alexander Neef

"The Canadian Children’s Opera Company is a wonderful ensemble of young singers that have delighted audiences from the Canadian Opera Company mainstage time and time again. The professionalism and commitment to their craft, as well as their exceptional talent, belies their young years. Beyond the CCOC’s role as a children’s chorus, the organization itself plays an essential role when it comes to arts education. For many of the young people involved in the CCOC, the chorus is how they make their first connection to opera, musical theatre and the performing arts in general. It is a vital contribution to fostering the arts in our community."


Karina Gauvin

“I absolutely loved my time as a chorister in the CCOC! I have many fond memories of concerts and productions I sang in Doctor Canon's Cure, The Saint Mathew Passion, Tosca, Wozzeck to name but a few.  Rare experiences for a child so young.  Little did I know that those experiences would pave the way for a life in music! Thank you CCOC!”  

In February 2013 Karina's new album "Alessandro" won the Prix Caecilia of the Belgian Press Union.  Listen to Haendel, Alessandro, "No, più soffrir non voglio".  Congratulations Karina!
