Celebrating Our Culture Through Song


Our Mission

“The COC is pleased to collaborate with CASP in the creation and performance of new Canadian art song. Canada is blessed with an incredible wealth of wonderful singers and it is very exciting that the repertoire of art songs written for them will grow and be cultivated by CASP.Alexander Neef, General Director, Canadian Opera Company

Canadian Art Song Project (CASP) exists to:

  • foster the creation and performance of Canadian art song repertoire by commissioning Canadian composers to write for Canadian singers;
  • to facilitate a collaborative process between the composer and the performer; and
  • to promote artistic excellence and the Canadian experience in the living art of song.
