We're deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a Stuart Hamilton. He was a kind man, an accomplished vocal coach, and mentor to generations of Canadian singers.

Hamilton was one of Canada’s premier vocal coaches for over 65 years. 

He was the founder and artistic director emeritus of Opera in Concert and was the first artistic director of the Canadian Opera Company ensemble. 

His master classes in vocal interpretation were widely attended across not only Canada but North America

At age 87, he passed away on Sunday, January 1, 2017 after a long 10-year battle with cancer.

In a detailed article by the CBC, Robert Cooper, former producer of Saturday Afternoon at the Opera, said this:

"Stuart was a great mentor and a great friend to everybody. He was a gracious, urbane, gentle human being with boundless operatic knowledge."
