The Fieldhouse at Oak Park

Vancouver, BC

Directions: The Fieldhouse is the little house in Oak Park behind the children's playground and water park, next to the Marpole Oakridge Community Centre.

Wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral washrooms.


Now is your chance to sing with a community opera chorus! We’ll teach you how to read an opera score, and provide techniques in breathing and singing. This event is open to anyone, regardless of their singing experience or ability. You can sing, or just observe the rehearsal process. You are not required to bring anything: just show up, meet some new people and have fun!



Opera Opulenza

Opera Opulenza was founded in 2014 by artistic director Trudy Chalmers. Together, with music director Roger Parton, Trudy has created a company that is dedicated to providing singers with opportunities to sing in concerts, fully-staged operas, and opera scenes.

In January 2019, Opera Opulenza joined chART: Public Art and Emily Carr University of Art + Design in the fieldhouse at Oak Park – an artist-in-residence initiative made possible by the Vancouver Parks Board. This opportunity has given Opera Opulenza the ability to broaden their programming to include a wide range of community engagement events and activities for the communities of Marpole and Oakridge.

We are bringing opera to the community by way of free concerts, workshops, opera screenings, masterclasses, a community opera chorus, and more! We hope to bring people together, to help people build confidence through singing and movement, to break social isolation, to be inclusive and accessible for all.
