Western Canada District News

Despite barred roads, 2400 runners, wind, rain, and a holiday weekend the 2017 MONC Western Canada Auditions were another success! So many fine singers to listen to in the beautiful UBC Old Auditorium. A huge thank you to the Vancouver Opera Guild and it's volunteers for sponsoring this event again! Thank you to all the young, talented singers, Nancy Hermiston of UBC Opera and her able volunteers, our three judges and the audience! It was a day to remember.
