Ottawa: Opera Atelier’s Co-Artistic Directors invested into the Order of Canada

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Last week Co-Artistic Directors Marshall and Jeannette travelled to Rideau Hall in Ottawa for the Order of Canada Investiture, where Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada officially invested them as members.

The Order of Canada is one of the country’s highest civilian honours, and recognizes Marshall and Jeannette’s phenomenal impact on the performing arts, arts education and the mentorship of young artists in Canada. 

“We feel that we share this honour with Opera Atelier’s entire creative team and the committed artists who have provided us with such inspiration over the years.” - Marshall and Jeannette

We are so thrilled and proud of Marshall and Jeannette on their well-deserved achievement! Visit the Governor General’s official website for photos and video of the ceremony.
