Private Christmas Recitals
Hearing a powerful spinto soprano fill your home with music is a very different experience than listening in a concert hall. You feel the intimacy of the music, and will be astounded by the power of an opera singer, performing just for you.

Your ears will tingle.

A private Christmas recital in your home or a mini-concert for your company holiday party. Unique, memorable, cheerful, and non-polluting. No need to “re-gift” because it’s the wrong size or colour. A private recital is 100% environmentally sustainable: you can recommend it to others.

Your family and guests will remember your private recital for years.


Toronto-born Suzanne Kilgore is a soprano who will delight you, your family, friends, and colleagues with her renditions of some of your seasonal favourites.

Her most recent large stage operatic role was that of Madama Butterfly, performed with Kitchener Opera in Kitchener and at The Mississauga Living Arts Centre.

Her portrayal of the young geisha, Madama Butterfly, was said to be  “detailed, heartfelt and ultimately moving, winning her the biggest ovation” wrote Ken Winters of The Globe and Mail. “A feat of endurance, beautifully sung and acted,” wrote Gwen and Gordon Jones of The Waterloo Chronicle.

Ms. Kilgore is a graduate of the Opera Performance Program at the University of Toronto, receiving the Canadian Opera Women’s Committee (COWC) Past President’s Scholarship two years in a row. She also studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music in the Vocal Performance Diploma Program and the ARCT program.
