Christopher Cameron enjoyed a long and successful career as a professional opera singer. He says he was never famous but he worked steadily and made a good living at his craft, performing on opera and concert stages across Canada. In 1989, he left full-time singing and began a career in the world of finance and technology, from which he retired in 2013. He spent the final years of his singing career as a member of the Canadian Opera Company Chorus, leaving in 2009, thirty-three years after he first started with the company. Several years ago he began writing. His first book, a memoir of his singing years, Dr. Bartolo’s Umbella and Other Tales from my Surprising Operatic Life (Seraphim Editions) was published in 2017.
