« British-Canadian composer Cecilia Livingston has been named the new Composer-in-Residence at the Canadian Opera Company. The program was created to support artistic growth and career development, with each residency custom-tailored to each artist. Livingston’s residency will last for two years, during which she will work closely with, and be mentored by, the company’s executive, artistic, and community programming leaders.

In an important feature of the composer residency, the Canadian Opera Company will work with Livingston on an artistic project to showcase the composer’s abilities, offering everything from dramaturgical input to musical feedback and critique through every step from conception through production.

As the COC’s new Composer-in-Residence, Livingston will regularly collaborate with the company’s Ensemble Studio for emerging artists, working alongside singers, instrumentalists, and program trainers to gain a deeper understanding of performers’ needs and perspective, while also coming together on creative endeavours. »
