Farewell to Nina DraganićBy Dorian CoxPosted in COC News
Next month one of the COC’s longest-serving team members, Nina Draganić, will be embarking on a new chapter and moving on from her role as Director of the COC Academy. In celebrating her leadership, we wanted to specifically highlight the incredible work and passion she has brought to launching and growing an extraordinary arts initiative, the Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre.
Opera and the BodyBy Jennifer SwanPosted in Ensemble StudioJennifer Swan
We all breathe! Most of us do this automatically, hundreds of times a day, without thinking about it. In some cases, there are reasons to work on breath and breathing more intentionally; the tremendous power and amplification that singing opera requires is one of those cases. In my work with the COC Ensemble Studio, I assess the mechanics of breath and breath management, and the physical patterns that help or hinder sound production in the singers. Put simply, I help them maximize air and the efficiency of air as they produce the incredible sounds we all admire so much!
Opera and Contemporary ArtBy COC StaffPosted in Key Change
Toronto, as a city, is an incredible cultural hub, home to countless creators and artistic organizations. In typical times, this has led to a dynamic, creative ecosystem but, throughout the pandemic, that sense of solidarity and partnership has deepened across the arts and culture sector. Continued collaboration has helped keep us all connected to our art forms and to each other.
