Among The Branches: A Special Project with the Nova Scotia Youth Choir
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the NSYC is re-imagining our program for this year. Partnering with Mi’kmaw filmmaker Shelley MacDonald, Mi’kmaw elder Dorene Bernard and Settler conductor Christina Murray, choristers will participate in an Indigenous-led creation process. Instead of our usual concert tour, the NSYC will create an ~25-minute film that combines choral music, poetry, and movement that explores themes of isolation, togetherness, and environmental stewardship.
- Camp Rehearsal Weekend – August 19 – 22 – United Church Campground, Berwick
- Audio Recording Weekend – August 27 – 29 – First Baptist Church, Halifax
- Film Shoot Weekend- September 17 – 19 – United Church Campground, Berwick
We are excited to invite both alumni and choristers that are new to the choir to participate. As this is a special project for the NSYC, we will be accepting choristers aged 16-35. There are limited spots so you’ll want to register as soon as possible!
Registration closes on August 13th.
