Founded in 2015 by Jennifer Krabbe, Danika Lorèn, and Whitney O’Hearn,   

Collectìf was created by three young women who want to shape the landscape of Canadian art song repertoire and performance practices. With staged productions, concert and cabaret-style shows, Collectìf explores a wide range of song repertoire, including original compositions and arrangements. 

Collectìf's main series focuses on staged productions of classical song and state of the art video projections that combine artful videography with text translations. Collectìf also hosts a cabaret series that focuses on unearthing the playful side of classical music in casual, adult-only venues.

Praised for her “warm and expressive voice and an amazing sense of line” (Ottawa Citizen), Whitney O’Hearn is attracting attention in the vocal world. She has performed with the Ottawa Choral Society, the Ottawa International Chamber Festival, Festival Pontiac Enchanté, Stratford Summer Music Festival, Prince Edward County Music Festival, The Talisker Players, and The Canadian Guitar Quartet. She has also made her mark in the indie opera scene as Mercedes in the wildly successful Carmen on Tap.  

Whitney received her undergraduate and master's degrees at the University of Ottawa, and recently completed further graduate studies at the University of Toronto. She is also an alumni of the National Art Centre’s Summer Music Institute young artist program.



With a stage presence that has been called “joyously uninhibited” (Opera Canada), soprano Jennifer Krabbe is finding success on both the operatic and the concert stage. She has performed in several Canadian premieres including Benjamin Britten's The World of the Spirit, Larry Nickel's Requiem for Peace, Eriks Ešenvalds' Passion and Resurrection, and Howard Goodall's Every Purpose Under Heaven.

A graduate of both the University of Western Ontario, and the Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School, Jennifer recently completed her Master's degree in Voice Performance at the University of Toronto under the tutelage of soprano, Monica Whicher.


Graduate of the Canadian Opera Company's Ensemble studio, Danika Lorèn is known for her dramatic sensitivity and instinctive musicality. Her finesse with song repertoire has afforded Danika opportunities to share the stage with internationally recognized singers such as Stephanie Blythe, Barbara Hannigan and Catherine Wyn-Rogers. Having premiered the first of her own compositions with the Canadian Art Song Project in 2016, she has since had her works performed in the Canadian Opera Company’s noon concert series. 

Ms. Lorèn completed her bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance at the University of Toronto under the instruction of J. Patrick Raftery, and a master's degree in Opera from the same institution, studying with Wendy Nielsen.
