Bring your little ones to the Canadian Opera Company for a special concert featuring some operatic gems performed by members of the COC Ensemble Studio. Hear opera professionals up-close and experience music that will excite, soothe, and mesmerize, both you and your baby!

Friday November 22nd at 11am - AT CAPACITY



Classical music has been proven to stimulate baby's sense - we believe parents need it too! That is why we created our classical chamber series.

We invite you to enjoy a classical chamber recital with baby/toddler in tow. Adapted to parent/baby needs the recital will take place at the Drake's North Lounge - where parents can enjoy seating arrangements, stand or walk - whatever works best.

Each themed 45 minute recital is curated by our artistic Director, Ivana Popovic. Each performance brings a varied program performed by the violin and the cello, in addition to occasional guest instruments.

Tickets are $18 per adult and at no cost for all accompanying babies and children. Tickets can only be purchased online - NO TICKETS ARE SOLD AT THE DOOR

Following the recital - you are welcomed to stay for Drake's 'Highchair Hangouts' in their North Lounge - where you can indulge in Drake's just-for-parents prix-fixe lunch menu.
