Renowned Canadian tenor Ben Heppner announces his retirement from singing
April 24, 2014
"After much consideration, I've decided the time has come for a new era in my life. I'm setting aside my career as an opera and concert singer.
I wish to thank the countless people who inspired me, supported me and encouraged me to embark on a fantastic journey over the past 35 years. A million thanks to those who hired me. Most importantly, I want to thank everyone who ever bought a ticket.
I'm really enjoying my time on CBC Radio as host of Saturday Afternoon at the Opera and Backstage with Ben Heppner, and look forward to what the future has in store."
