Julia Bonnett spent 30 years as a classical singer and stage performer in the Vancouver area.
In recent years, her career focus changed to music education for young children, teaching for Vancouver Opera’s Education and Outreach programs and for the Vancouver Academy of Music. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and in-person teaching stopped, Julia took the opportunity to change course, and has been doing a lot of volunteer work, chairing a PAC committee at her son’s school, supporting the CNIB’s Assistive Technology program and grant writing with Aquafit for All, an organization devoted to providing accessible exercise programs for stroke survivors and the blind and partially sighted.
Julia has Retinitis Pigmentosa, and is very grateful for the love and support of her husband and two kids. Other interests are cooking, gardening, good books and good friends!
