The Vancouver Opera Association grew from the Grand Opera Society of B.C. and presented its first professional production of "Carmen" in 1960. In the following years, operas were presented at six month intervals. An Endowment Trust Fund was set up to ensure continuity and stability of the Association's activities. The Association also initiated an opera training program.
