About the Bicycle Opera Project:9334811229_2614b3bef8_b

The Bicycle Opera Project brings Canadian contemporary opera to communities across Ontario by bicycle.

We bring Canadian music to people who might otherwise have little opportunity to hear it, and work to close the distance between audiences and opera singers through performance in intimate spaces. The project focuses on operatic repertoire that deals with contemporary issues relevant to all audiences. Our scenes are sung in English (and sometimes in French) so that audiences can more readily relate to the material.

In this summer of architecture, Building Waterloo Region has established a partnership with the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery and Roylco to give future award-winning designers a chance to explore architecture with hands-on activities in structures, design and construction.

  • construct a community
  • test a tower
  • plan a city
  • build a house
  • design a dome

Activities are all led by architects or architects in training! Kids Build Waterloo Region is suitable for young people between the ages of 7 and 12 years, accompanied by an adult. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis, no registration is required, but please note space is limited and parents or guardians are required to supervise. It all happens at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery25 Caroline St N, Waterloo, from 1 to 4 pm, on select Saturdays this summer: July 12, 19 and 26, and August 9 and 16.

The Clay and Glass Gallery is itself an award-winning building and this summer will host the No Small Plans exhibit. The exhibit presents more than a dozen brilliant examples of creative design by Canada’s leading architects located right here in Waterloo Region.

This program is sponsored by Roylco (roylco.com), in collaboration with Building Waterloo Region (buildingwaterlooregion.ca), and the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery.
