2021 Program Postponed

The Covid-19 pandemic is a devastating situation for us all. Unfortunately, we are obliged to again postpone our program this year.

The Foundation remains committed to supporting young Canadian opera singers and assure all of our friends, supporters and most of all our community of young singers that we are planning a return to our annual programme when circumstances permit.

More than ever, the world needs joy, positivity and magic of young opera voices. We continue to be committed to recognizing, encouraging and nurturing the development of talented young Canadian voices. Please check our website for update. Until our program returns, let’s support one another as best we can. 

Take good care,

The Board of Directors of the Jacqueline Desmarais Foundation for Young Canadian Opera Singers

Coming Soon

The website for The Jacqueline Desmarais Foundation for young Canadian opera singers is currently under construction.
