Join other graduates of Canadian universities for the All-Canada University Association annual event. Held each spring in Washington, DC, this event brings together alumni and their guests for an exceptional evening of insight, conversation and friendship.

They sing without a microphone, act, dance and communicate in several different languages. They are masters of multi tasking, their training encompasses as many years as that of a doctor and their passion for their work carries them through feast and famine. They are those creatures called 'opera singers.'

This year's program, hosted by UBC, features a presentation of Opera 101, led by acclaimed opera performer and UBC professor Nancy Hermiston. Part stimulating lecture, part lively performance, Opera 101 will provide you with insight into the training, performances, careers and lives of opera singers.

Canadian-born lyric coloratura and UBC professor Nancy Hermiston is recognized as one of Europe's most versatile and exciting vocal artists. In 1995, she joined the UBC School of Music as the head of the Voice and Opera division, where she established the UBC Opera Ensemble.

The City Tavern Club is located in one of Washington's oldest buildings. Dating back to 1796, it counts founding fathers Washington, Jefferson and Adams as some of its earliest patrons. Please note that the club's dress code requires guests to wear a jacket and tie. Jeans, shorts, flip flops and athletic shoes are not permitted.
