On Sunday Nov. 5th at the Centennial Concert Hall, the Manitoba Choral Association will present the Canadian Folk Song Gala, with different choirs from around the province each singing an arrangement of an iconic Canadian Folksong (think Joni Mitchell, Stan Rogers, Leonard Cohen, the McGarrigle sisters etc.). We have been invited to take part, and all the choirs will sing something together at the end. So mark Sunday Nov. 5th on your calendars!
Two other dates to mark are Aug 10th and 13th, for singing two songs (O Canada in unison and one other song) as part of the Canada Games closing ceremonies at Investors Group Field. I will be conducting a huge choir – they’re hoping for 2017 voices! This will be broadcast on national TV and will be an amazing event.
