Olivia's Operatic Adventure | Episode 25
Have you ever met an opera singing bassoonist? Rebecca and Zara have, and she’s only nine years old! Olivia Pady is a quint (mini bassoon) player and member of the Canadian Children’s Opera Company’s principal chorus. The CCOC works in collaboration with the Canadian Opera Company, allowing its young members to perform in professional operatic productions. Olivia recently sang the role of Marcel in the Canadian Opera Company’s production of Fantasma, composed by Ian Cusson. In this episode, she shares her favourite part of the rehearsal process, what it’s like working with a professional opera company, and what happens when your veil doesn’t fit quite right. Oh! And if you have a question about the bassoon, Olivia is the girl to ask!
