Calgary born soprano Gwendolyn Yearwood began singing at the age of 5 with the Calgary Girls Choir. Gwendolyn sang with the choir for 16 years.

She taught and mentored several young singers while completing a diploma of music performance at Mount Royal University.

During her time with UBC Opera she had the opportunity to perform several roles throughout Canada, the Czech Republic, and China. Her performances with UBC Opera include: Countess in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, Magda in Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Consul, Mimi in Puccini’s La Bohème, and Giorgetta in Puccini’s il Tabarro. Gwendolyn has also performed the role of Musetta with Burnaby Lyric Opera, Rosalinde with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, and most recently Niece 2 in the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s production of Peter Grimes. Gwendolyn moved to Toronto in the summer of 2018 to continue pursuing a career in music. She is thrilled to continue teaching singers of all ages here in Toronto.
