Monthly meetings offer a wide variety of events from lectures and debates to videos, reviews and interviews with international performers. We maintain a scholarship fund which is used to support and sponsor young singers studying here in Toronto and abroad. The recipients often perform at an annual recital. In the past couple of years we have been invited by the Canadian Opera Company to present preperformance lectures for their Wagner and Strauss productions. We will continue this tradition in the current season. Through our interaction with international Wagner Societies we are able to offer members the opportunity to travel to Bayre~th and other Wagner productions. A quarterly newsletter keeps members up to date on activities of interest. Watch for our listings in WholeNote- most meetings are Monday nights a t The Arts and Letters Club, 14 Elm Street, Toronto.
