In 2008, Fris was declared '"one of Toronto's most artistic, creative and inspiring women"' by Toronto's Luminato Festival and joined the ranks of other luminaries and well-known faces such as former Governor-General of Canada Adrienne Clarkson, actor Cynthia Dale and journalist Valerie Pringle. Since her professional opera debut in 1984, her personal charisma and vocal beauty continue to endear her to audiences.


She was awarded the Grand Prize at the 1989 International Bel Canto Voice Competition in Chicago and has been a prizewinner at other competitions including the Luciano Pavarotti Competition in Philadelphia, the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions (Great Lakes District) in Toronto and the MacAllister Voice Competition in Indianapolis. She is also a recipient of several prestigious Canada Council and Nova Scotia Talent Trust Awards and the Arnold Walter and Canadian Opera Company Women's Guild Scholarships.


Fris first attracted national attention when she was chosen as a Canadian winner and international finalist in the 3rd Annual International Luciano Pavarotti Voice Competition (Philadelphia Opera) in 1988. The following year, Fris was awarded the Grand Prize at the International Bel Canto Foundation Voice Competition (Chicago, Illinois), resulting in engagements for U.S. audiences in Chicago, Illinois, Philadelphia, and New York City. Her Italian début as Amelia Grimaldi (Simon Boccanegra) at the Teatro dei Rozzi, Siena, Italy and re-engagements at the Luino Italia Summer Music Festival as Fiordiligi (Così fan tutte) followed. In 1990, Fris performed the world-premiere of Canadian composer Patricia Blomfield Holt's "A Song of Darkness and Light". Since then, Barbara Fris has gone on to become one of Canada's most versatile lyrico-spinto sopranos active today, with her portrayals of opera heroines, her concert performances and recitals.


Mimi in La bohème marked the singer's opera début at the Courtney Summer Music Festival (1982). Her professional career and main-stage opera début was launched in 1984 with her portrayal of Clorinda (La Cenerentola) with the Calgary Opera. Re-engagements with the Calgary Opera and guest appearances with the Manitoba Opera and Edmonton Opera followed.


Fris was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and began her musical studies at the Nova Scotia Teacher's College (Truro), where she obtained an Associate of Education Diploma and Licentiate as an Early Childhood Music Specialist (1977). She later graduated from Dalhousie University, Faculty of Music (1980) with a Bachelor of Music in Performance (Honours) and the University of Toronto Opera Division (1983), where she obtained a Diploma in Opera Performance (Honours) as a scholarship student of the noted Dutch baritone, Bernard Diamant and with the support of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust and Canada Council. Ms. Fris completed further post-graduate work at the Accademia dei Rozzi, (Siena Italy) under Maestro Walter Baracchi, former principal coach and conductor at Teatro alla Scala di Milano. Subsequent musical studies led her to New York City where she studied privately with Rita Patané of the Manhattan and Juilliard Schools of Music in Patané's Carnegie Hall studio. Fris later worked with Féderico Dávia of the Metropolitan Opera and Donna Brunsma, Assistant Conductor at the Chicago Lyric Opera. Since her memorable beginnings, she has mastered a large repertoire from the classics of opera and oratorio to the art songs of French, German, British and American composers, and a great treasury of contemporary popular music.
