Eswina has been singing in the Calgary area for over 20 years. Though classically trained, Eswina enjoys singing a wide variety of music. She has performed Classical, Jazz, Spirituals and Contemporary music. She has sung at numerous weddings, memorials, political and charity fundraisers and other special events. She has been a member of the Calgary Opera Chorus since 2003 and was in Canada's 1st Summer Opera Festival production as one of the General's daughters in the Pirates of Penzance in the East Village in August 2013. She was in Calgary Opera’s 2013/14 production of The Flying Dutchman and Madame Butterfly and had the privilege of performing as Mama-san to Madame Butterfly in Puccini's popular opera. She is a former member of the Calgary Multicultural Choir and Kantorei.
Her Catholic faith has been a driving force in her life and in the past few years she has started developing "prayer concerts" which integrate scripture readings with song to engage her audience in a time of reflection on selected themes of the Gospel. She has also served her faith community as one of the Diocesan Cantors for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary and serves as cantor at local parishes.
Among her many talents she is also a phenomenal event organizer. Most recently she produced the concert Shared Blessings to raise funds for Made by Momma, a charity that helps mothers and children in crisis. In 2013 she produced High Hopes for High River, a concert that raised over $10,000 for High River residents who were affected by the June 2013 floods and who had no access to resources to rebuild. In the past she has held 2 concerts, In Thanksgiving, for Chalice, a Canadian Catholic Sponsorship Program which benefits almost 50,000 children and seniors in about 15 countries. She has also performed in other fundraising efforts such as Pump Aid, to fund wells for villages in Africa and A Song For Rachel to help fund Project Rachel, an outreach program for those affected by abortion. Her favourite thing to do is to recruit fellow performers to put on concerts to raise money for worthwhile causes.
