BeCause & Effect #32: Spencer Duncanson

Arts, Culture & Heritage

Spencer Duncanson is a champion for the arts. He fell in love with opera as a child, and has been obsessed ever since. As founder and Artistic Director of the Little Opera Company in Winnipeg, Spencer has built his career on making opera approachable, enjoyable, and digestible to as many people as possible.

As a lifelong educator and mentor to countless young artists, Spencer is guiding the next generation of top tier singers, and helping create strong, capable adults.

I sat down with Spencer Duncanson, to talk about the importance of art in our culture, the value of mentorship, and how to recognize the value of artistic expression.
