Allison Ward is thrilled to be performing again in her beloved hometown. She has returned from Europe where she was accepted into one of Paris’ most prestigious conservatories before moving to Leipzig, Germany to continue her operatic studies. While in Europe, she performed La Contessa in Le nozze di Figaro in Luxembourg where she also won the Nei Stëmmen International Vocal Competition.
Allison holds an Opera Diploma from the Vancouver Academy of Music and a BFA in Theatre from the University of Victoria. She has been a member of Pacific Opera Victoria’s chorus for eight seasons and sung multiple comprimaria roles. She is also involved in the company’s community engagement program Opera Etc. and has brought opera to people at the Oak Bay Tea Party and Car Free Day YYJ, to volunteers at HeroWork, and to retirement homes through the Coloratura program. Allison hopes her singing brings a little bit of peace in this challenging time.
