About YPOSBC

Young People's Opera Society of BC

The Young People's Opera Society of BC (YPOSBC) is a Registered Charity, founded by Patricia Dahlquist in 2005. Since the society entered its second decade in 2015, significant progress has continued under the guidance of the new Artistic Director, Dolores Scott. YPOSBC offers affordable opportunities for youth (both young in age and young at heart) to learn about, participate in, and sing opera at a community level. With weekly rehearsals and several performances a year, YPOSBC Opera incorporates singing, dancing and acting as well as offering positions in production.

YPOSBC has worked with hundreds of singers from age 8 to 80, engaged many musicians, enrolled eager parents, and delighted thousands of audience members, young and old alike. Society members have gone on to study and perform in Victoria, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and Oklahoma.
