Opera Canada Publications is Canada’s longest continuously produced arts magazine. Founded in 1960 by Ruby Mercer, the magazine has been publishing 4 issues a year containing news about Canadians in opera, both in the country and around the world for 63 years. In addition to the magazine, this not-for-profit organization has also recently invested in a robust and entertaining website (operacanada.ca) where you can get the latest news and reviews about Opera in Canada.
We are in an exciting transitional time as we expand our digital tools to implement new revenue generation content (including online classes for artists, arts administrators, and fans of the art form). Additionally, over the next 3 months we will be moving to a more digital-friendly magazine circulation software system that will house the tools/functionality that we can embed into our web pages to give our readers more subscription options. We are expanding on the digital side while keeping the print circulation going for our loyal subscription base. Opera Canada distributes over 3,500 copies of each quarterly issue, and has on average 18,000 monthly visitors to operacanada.ca
Opera Canada is actively seeking new members for their Board of Directors. Qualifications include an interest in opera, time to work on a committee (fundraising, editorial, digital, finance) and a commitment to sustaining the art form.
