Sing The North: A Cross-Canada Virtual Choir Tour Starting February 5th!

A Message from Sing The North:

We are thrilled to announce that the full Season 2 of our X-Canada Virtual Choir Tour is now posted on our website and open for bookings. NSCF members will receive 10% off STN projects when they use the code “nscf” at checkout. This offer is valid on all virtual choir rehearsal/concert projects and season passes. (The only activities excluded are our Choir School courses.) As a member of our own provincial choral federation, we know the benefits of membership first-hand – especially during the pandemic. We want to do our part, however small, in incentivizing others to support theirs.

STN Artistic Director Kathryn Whitney writes:

“Choral federations are the backbone of Canadian choral music and I am so grateful for everything you have done to keep choristers connected, informed, and singing safely during this unbelievably challenging time. I am so pleased to be able to offer your members a blanket discount to all our SING THE NORTH concert projects. It’s my hope that this may help to encourage choristers who may unable to attend in-person choirs owing to ill-health to keep singing, while at the same time strengthening their bond to, and sense of advantage in, their local choral federations, who continue to do so much to keep the music alive during this challenging time.”

In the new year, we’re heading to the East Coast to explore Nova Scotia through Jeff Enns and Rita Joe’s “I Lost My Talk.” All proceeds from this project will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. It’s a SING THE NORTH tradition to have a field trip coinciding with each project, to educate and inspire our singers! In addition to the above, our current or upcoming STN projects will feature the works of:

  • Andrew Balfour: “Vision Chant” (Starts Feb. 5)
  • R. Murray Schafer: “Snowforms” (Starts Feb. 12)
  • Imant Raminsh: “In the Night We Shall Go In” (Starts March 19)
  • Jeff Enns and Rita Joe’s “I Lost My Talk” (Starts May 1)
  • Ian Tyson: “Four Strong Winds” (Starts May 14)
  • Jocelyn Morlock: “Io, Io!” (Start date TBD)

We invite you to learn more about these and other STN projects on our website.
