Where music and drama find each other

What a night!!

What a night! Beautiful venue, fabulous food, unique and wonderful items up for auction to all in attendance. We honoured two outstanding and highly regarded members of the Ottawa-Gatineau community, Barbara and Glenn McInnes. Their legacy to our social and cultural fabric will be felt for many years to come. Oh, did I mention the outstanding performances by Mireille Asselin, Marion Newman, and James Westman? The Opera Lyra Gala – 30 Years Young celebrated the Opera Lyra Studio Program which has provided extensive training to emerging Canadian singers. Ania, Cairan, Eliza, and Sean came out and showed everyone their burgeoning talents and aspirations. You heard their names here first! Finally, much thanks goes to the team at Cartier Place Suite Hotel for giving our artists a place to lay their heads after such fantastic performances. Well done everyone!
