Programs in our Community
We are looking forward to continuing our work in our community as and when it is safe to do so. Our upcoming plans will be shared publicly as soon as possible.
The Kettle Society
In November 2020, VO began a new project with longtime community partners, The Kettle Society. Members of the Kettle Choir were invited to join weekly virtual classes in music, movement and visual arts, along with their long standing weekly writing class, all taught by VO teaching artists. The groups are in the process of collaborating to create a short video documenting their work together, which will be presented in late Spring 2021. The impact of these classes has been immeasurable, as the isolation this group has experienced due to the pandemic is palpable. The sense of community prevails, as each class is filled with familiar faces, creativity and laughter.
Previous collaborations with The Kettle Society have included 2018’s Requiem for a Lost Girl, presented as part of the Vancouver Opera Festival, and March 2020’s Can You Hear Me Project: To Begin Again, which you can view now documented as a video here.
