Collaborative Pianists Needed for COC Outreach

Today I received the following Call for Artist-Educators from the Education and Outreach Department of the Canadian Opera Company, posted below.

Call for Artist-Educators

Are you interested in being part of the Canadian Opera Company Education
and Outreach Department’s roster of artist-educators who lead our innovative
multi-disciplinary programs?

Our programs aim to be creative, inclusive, participatory, developmental and fun. The joy of opera is that it encompasses many art forms and so we are currently seeking artist-educators from a number of different disciplines.

The successful workshops and programs run by the COC take place both in school and community settings, as well as the Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Opera Centre and the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Artist-educators work on a contract basis and should be open to working flexible hours (days, evenings, and some weekends inclusive). We are looking for artist-educators to deliver our Education and Outreach programs with the following areas of expertise:

  • Voice
  • Collaborative piano
  • Composition
  • Design
  • Drama
  • Movement

We would like to encourage artist-educators from all backgrounds and diverse
cultural influences to consider joining us to help young people explore ideas on
musical storytelling.


  • Dedication to working with young people
  • Passion for opera
  • Enthusiasm
  • Flexibility
  • Creativity
  • Organization, attention to detail
  • Openness to collaborate with other artists

Skill Requirements:

  • Proven experience of working with groups of young people ages 5-18
  • Professional experience in your art form
  • Experience working in a community arts setting or a school environment
  • Flexibility to tailor workshops to different groups
