This unique opera-focused mentorship program offers talented young artists from The Glenn Gould School and the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music exposure to world-class opera productions, under the mentorship of professional musicians in the COC Orchestra. In this special performance, members of the Academy perform alongside their mentors in a program of gems from the chamber music repertoire.

Dvorak: String Quintet, Op. 77
