As interest in vocal music increases the Olivia Whiddon Academy of Music is starting to evolve. 2017 marks a new point in music here in Kenora, we now have a new branch of the OWAM called the Kenora Opera Theatre. The Kenora Opera Theatre allows advanced students the ‘opera’tunity to perform in concerts and fully staged operas.
This has brought about changes in the regular OWAM season. New group classes have been created to reflect the growing needs of the community. Fall class will be technique based, with most classes receiving either theory books or Royal Conservatory of Music songbooks. Performance classes will be offered in the winter for students interested in performing in the Kenora District Festival of the Arts.
I hope you find these new changes as exciting as I do!
