Holy Trinity Residencies exist to create mutual benefit for the resident and Holy Trinity. Residents may be individuals or groups in the community that offer an artistic talent that serves the wider community. This might be a poet, an author, a playwright, a painter, a singer, an actor, a theatre group, opera company, choir, orchestra or small ensemble, dance ensemble, dance class, visual arts group, or any other types of arts activity. To apply for a Residency or to learn more, please contact the Bookings Administrator.

Current Residencies

Resident Opera Company: Pop Goes The Opera
Pop Goes The Opera (PGTO) is a little performance company celebrating the big talent that exists in Edmonton’s opera community! Formed in 2015 by Glynis Price, PGTO began with a single opera at that year’s Fringe Festival. Since then, PGTO has expanded and now presents an opera every year as part of the Fringe Festival (on the Sanctuary stage) as well as other operatic programming throughout the year. All coming PGTO events can be found on the Holy Trinity Event page. Check out PGTO on FaceBook by clicking here.

Currently under the direction of former Edmonton Symphony principal oboist Lidia Khaner, RCO allows emerging musicians to develop their skills in a professional orchestral setting, while working alongside other local artists in a variety of multidisciplinary performances.
