Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music

Established at Memorial University of Newfoundland through a visionary gift from Drs. Jean and Angus Bruneau, the Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music promotes research and community projects that seek to understand, encourage and enhance the powerful impact that choral singing can have on individuals and communities. The resources of the Centre assist in the realization of projects that have the potential to stimulate excellence in community music-making at local levels both across the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and on national and international levels. 

The BCECM will fund projects that stem both from the University and from the wider choral community through an annual call for proposals, beginning in 2014. 

Call for Research and Community Project Proposals. Application deadline October 1, 2014 (results announced December 1, 2014). Applications are now available. Please use the links to the left.
