About COC Education and Outreach Department:

The COC Education and Outreach Department introduce thousands of Ontario students to the excitement, complexity and beauty of the world of opera through summer opera camps, after school opera programs, student dress rehearsals, study guides, teacher's events and much much more.
Some the programs are linked to the main stage shows, some take the opera right into the school and some encourage the young people to create the operas themselves.
