A champion of vocal versatility, Camryn Dewar is an accomplished Métis vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of many genres, including contemporary classical, opera, musical theatre and jazz. Hailed as an “incredible performer and instrument” (Jeffrey Gall), she is passionate about presenting the works of living and Indigenous composers and is committed to using her artistry to uplift and amplify Indigenous voices.
Recent operatic engagements include performances in The Grapes of Wrath with Master Voices at Carnegie Hall and Blind Injustice with Peak Performances in Montclair, New Jersey. In Blind Injustice, Camryn served as the understudy for the principal role of Nancy Smith, collaborating closely with composer Scott Davenport Richards and Tony Award-winning music director Ted Sperling. She portrayed Josette LaGrande in Li Keur: Riel's Heart of the North, the first full-scale Indigenous-led opera presented on a Canadian opera mainstage alongside the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Manitoba Opera in their 2023 workshop.
An avid recitalist, Camryn produced and showcased her talent at a concert entitled Living Music at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, as well as Beneath the Azure Sky at the Agassiz Chamber Music Festival. Camryn was honoured to have been awarded the 2023/2024 Virtuosi Concert Young Artist, a distinction that culminated in her performance at the Roots and Branches Concert.
For her vision and drive, Camryn was awarded the Modern Métis Woman Scholarship,
