Patricia O’Callaghan is something of a wandering minstrel. Her fifteen-year career has taken her across genres, continents, and a range of disciplines and passions.

Her recording career spans six solo CDs and many interesting guest collaborations. A speaker of French, Spanish, and German, her early recordings focused on European cabaret, and she is considered a specialist in the music of Kurt Weill. Patricia has performed his Threepenny Opera, Seven Deadly Sins, and Kleine Mahagonnywith Soulpepper Theatre Company, Edmonton Opera, and Vancouver Opera, to name a few.


“This Toronto soprano can sing a 100-year-old German tune so lustily that you almost don’t need a translation to know that someone’s about to get his throat cut or get laid or both.” – The National Post


One of Patricia’s most unique talents is the ability blend a variety of languages and musical genres seamlessly together in her concerts, and completely embody whatever style she is singing at any given moment.


“O’Callaghan sings her diverse material as if it was always meant to go side-by-side and by the end of the evening, it’s easy to believe her.” – Chart Attack Magazine


She has sung with some of the world’s great ensembles and artists (Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Don Byron Quartet, Bryn Terfel), and has performed in venues that range from London’s Royal Opera Houseto New York’s Noho cabaret Le Poisson Rouge.

Patricia also writes and co-writes songs and has had the honor of premiering many new compositions, from both the classical and pop worlds.  It has been her great privilege to work with such creators as R. Murray Schafer, David Braid, Dennis Lee, Christos Hatzis, George Aperghis, Steve Reich, and Steven Page, to name a few.

Patricia’s film, theatre and television credits include her own Bravo!special, The CBCproduced Ken Finkleman series  Foolish Heart, and the semi autobiographical Rhombus/ Westwindfilm Youkali Hotel, which has won several prizes, including a Golden Sheaf Awardto Patricia for best female performance. Ms. O’Callaghan has also received other awards, such as a Chalmer’s Grantfrom the Ontario Arts Counciland a Fleck Fellowshipfrom The Banff Centre for the Arts.

She recently completed a six-year stint as aResident Artistat Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre Company.  Her responsibilities there included conducting, teaching, mentoring young artists, producing, curating and performing in festivals, and developing new work.

Recent projects include Broken Hearts and Madmen; a collaboration with The Gryphon Trio, which blends classical music with traditional songs from Latin America and pop songs from around the world…


“Broken Hearts and Madmen is an exquisite piece of work. The result is absolutely breathtaking in its attention to detail, with every note carved from their love of the songs…” – Vivascene


and Matador: The Songs of Leonard Cohen


“A truly exceptional blend of natural expressiveness and masterful coloration, her tender versions of Cohen’s “Take this Waltz” and “Hallelujah” are revelatory.” -
 Billboard Magazine


And brand new are her first Christmas CD, Deepest December, covering Renaissance to modern, hurdy gurdy to lap steel guitar, and the 2019 JUNO nominated Corona Divinae Misericordiae, by David Braid.


“She’s one of the best singers ever to come out of Canada.” – Vivascene



Patricia O’Callaghan Sings Leonard Cohen & More


Experience the sensuous, bittersweet music of Leonard Cohen and his contemporaries, given a feminine touch in the hands of Canadian chanteuse, Patricia O’Callaghan. Mixing his lesser-known songs with new twists on the hits, she peppers these fresh interpretations with French and Spanish, giving the lyrics cultural context and taking them into the realm of musical poetry. Patricia’s easy connection with the audience, her striking stage presence, and her warm, crystalline voice create an ambiance of intimacy that perfectly serves the songs of this iconic troubadour.

Performing beloved hits like “Who By Fire?, “Suzanne” and “Dance Me To the End of Love”, Patricia, along with Robert Kortgaard on piano and Andrew Downing on double bass, delivers a beautifully personal yet quietly powerful concert experience.


“In short, a stunning concert from a consummate quartet of artists, crowned by the gold and sapphire miracle of Patricia O’Callaghan’s voice”Halifax Herald Chronicler

Christmas with Patricia O’Callaghan and Friends is an enchanting evening of songs that Patricia carefully selected and recorded with her friends in 2015 in celebration of the holiday season.  From Northern Sky by Nick Drake to favourite standards like The First Noel and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, as well as a few surprising originals, the concert features a wide selection of seasonal songs for the entire audience to enjoy.  Each show includes special guests who vary by city and venue, but the quality of the artistry always remains constant.

Community Engagement Opportunities: Patricia conducts a community choir in Toronto, ON and shares her extensive experience with the local choirs in each community.  The concert includes simple choral arrangements, which allow Patricia to work with various community choirs while touring – teaching the participants a song or two, then inviting them to join her in performing those songs that evening on stage. The concert also features sing-along opportunities for the whole audience, making it a fun, warm and well rounded evening.

Christmas with Patricia O’Callaghan & Friends can also be performed with full orchestra.
