Larissa Koniuk

I am a singer, performer, voice teacher, workshop clinician, and adjudicator with over 12 years of experience. As an active performer, my focus has been in contemporary opera, having appeared in many premieres such as: Sweat by Juliet Palmer and Anna Chatterton (Centre for Contemporary Opera, New York), Chris Thornborrow and Julie Tepperman’s Selfie (Tapestry Opera), Adam Scime’s L’homme et le ciel (FAWN Opera), Brian Current’s Airline Icarus (Soundstreams), Dean Burry and Lorna MacDonald’s The Bells of Baddeck, and Stephanie Martin’s Llandovery Castle.

On the concert stage, I have recently been engaged by Theatre of Early Music, Toronto Masque Theatre, Pax Christi Chorale, Oriana Singers, Quinte Symphony, and Cantabile Choirs.

I am also the co-founder and artistic director of the Bicycle Opera Project, a company that champions new opera works and tours exclusively by bicycle! With Bicycle Opera, I have performed over 20 new works with Ottawa International Chamberfest, The Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s New Creations Festival, The Royal Conservatory of Music’s 21C Festival, Stratford Summer Music, Westben Festival, and in numerous unusual performance spaces all over Ontario.
