Tapestry Opera is seeking a Project Manager for Women in Musical Leadership and Canadian Opera Resource.

The role will be part-time until June 30th, 2021, full-time from July 1 2021 to June 30 2022, and reduced to part-time in July 2023. There is room for growth, negotiation, and retention into larger and longer term roles within the organization for the right candidate.

Women in Musical Leadership is a national, partnership-based, multi-year fellowship program for emerging female-identified and non-binary conductors. Women in Musical Leadership is a program designed to offer opportunities to top Canadian talent and address the longstanding gender imbalance in music direction and conducting in opera and classical music. It’s an advanced three-year fellowship program for 6 music directors/conductors in cohorts of 2, beginning a year apart. With the support of like-minded organizations across Canada, the goal of Women in Musical Leadership is to provide multi-faceted practical conducting training, mentorship, and professional opportunities to promising conducting talent, allowing them to focus solely on conducting for three years. The Women in Musical Leadership program is supported by the Azrieli Foundation.

Canadian Opera Resource is a membership-based, user-driven database and rights management platform for Canadian Opera, directly benefiting Canadian composers, librettists, Canadian opera companies and other opera professionals. It is a living site, a promotional platform, and an online marketplace for works and recordings of works of Canadian opera - it’s a catalyst for the creation of a Canadian opera canon and a one-stop resource for anyone interested in Canadian operas. This project will enter its final year of development in July 2021 and will need to be stewarded through its final year.

We are committed to equity and justice in hiring and will prioritize applications from people from communities of colour, LGBTQ2S, Indigenous, disabled, and other equity-seeking communities to apply.
