  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of COC Summer Music Camp

    our take

    The COC is the largest opera company in Canada and one of the foremost companies in North America in terms of size, breadth, quality, and community outreach. There is a dedication to creative and accessible programming, and the children’s programs reflect that. The programs are able to draw on a broad range of resources, from professional instructors, performers and professionals, to facilities that are literally unequalled in the country. The foundational belief of the company, if not expressed in exactly these terms, is that opera is for everyone and that, from sets to stage work, can address a range of creative skills and talents in an integrated and collaborative way. The environment of the company itself is a principle draw—children who enrol enter an authentic arts environment, meeting and learning from mentors and peers who share their passions and interests. They also participate in one of the primary arts organizations of the city. For some children, perhaps most, it's a transformative experience.

    I really enjoyed the original writing game that created the storyline.

    The best part was the rehearsing of songs and games. I'll remember all the arts and crafts, tips and life advice.
