‘Project Phoenix’ – the first step…

The Montreal West-End Operatic Society  *  La société opératique de l’ouest de Montréal

Mark your calendars for an important event in the history of MWOS! 

“Project Phoenix” – the first step! 

Saturday afternoon, June 10, 2017: Planning session & AGM

Dear Members,

MWOS is at a critical crossroads.

As members (current, recent, life, honorary, or supporting), and as family and friends, we have some hard thinking to do and some important decisions to make.

We should ask ourselves questions such as:

  • “What do I see MWOS doing within the next 2 to 5 years?”
  • “What are MWOS’s greatest strengths and greatest weaknesses?”
  • “What role does MWOS play within the community?”
  • “What does MWOS mean to me?”


After handling the usual AGM business (briefly, we promise!) we will open the floor to a general, unscripted, and agenda-free discussion, led by arts management expert Jane Needles, who has generously offered us her time and skill.

A long-time advocate for the arts in Quebec and a specialist in operational and governance issues, Jane is ideally suited to the task of keeping us focused and energized.

Jane will also distill the key points from the discussion and continue to work with the MWOS board over the coming months as we move forward.


Please join us!  Bring your ideas, your enthusiasm, your concerns, but most of all your love of MWOS and what it has meant to you and continues to mean.

If you are eager to take part in the next MWOS production, this discussion marks the first step.

Even if you haven’t been with MWOS for some time, or you can no longer perform with us, your past experience can give us valuable insight.

 When:            June 10, noon to 5 pm

 Where:           TBC, but in the Montreal West End

 Cost:               Free.   Your participation is invaluable!

Food and drink will be served.

See you soon!

MWOS: Please contribute…

Dear Friends,

This is to let you know that the Montreal West-End Operatic Society is not currently in production and will not be presenting a show in the spring of 2017. Please keep checking this post for updates.

MWOS is in the process of going dormant for a period of time, in order to regain its strength.  Once solvency is attained by selling assets and appealing for charitable donations, we hope to move towards production again.  Your support is vital to our success.

Charitable donation receipts will be issued to all those who make MWOS a gift of 10$ or more. Please include a stamped, self-addressed return envelope.

If you value live performance and the continuance of your local theatrical society (nearing its 80th anniversary), please contact us – donations@mwos.org 514-990-8813 (ext. 6).

Online donations can be made directly to Canada Helps www.canadahelps.org/dn/10153.

Thank you!
