Just before Christmas we received some wonderful news: Sing Canada Harmony has awarded us with a scholarship to support the Sounds of the Next Generation choral program!  With their help, we can purchase almost half of the sheet music we need for the Solid Ground choirs for an entire year.  This is important to SONG for several reasons.  Not only does it allow our young singers to experience a wide variety of quality repertoire, it also shows those children the huge community they’ve got behind them.  This week we resumed rehearsals after the holiday hiatus, new music in hand.  The joy on the singers’ faces while learning a new piece of music is hard to describe.  It is a wonderful gift!

Sing Canada Harmony is a Canadian charity that awards scholarships in the belief that

vocal music plays a vital role in the development of healthy, creative and responsible members of society.  This belief results in a commitment towards ensuring equal access to vocal music arts for people of all ages, but particularly to the children and youth of Canada, and the men and women who facilitate their learning to enrich lives through singing.

All of us here at SONG wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to Sing Canada Harmony for their support.  The choir experience for our 50+ singers will be greatly enriched by your contribution to our program.  Without supporters like you we couldn’t continue to provide musical ensembles for under-served children in our community.

Thank you!
