The Big Sing 2020

This year's event has sadly been cancelled. We wish all students and teachers safety, health and connection during this time and look forward to making music together in the future!

The Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music would like to extend to you an invitation to participate in "The Big Sing 2020!” - a choral experience designed for elementary aged students throughout the province.

In a half day workshop, Melanie Tellez from the internationally renowned Hamilton Children’s Choir will lead the students through three pieces of music (to be shared soon). We ask that you prepare these pieces with your choir prior to your arrival (scores will be provided); the majority of the rehearsal time will be spent on choral singing techniques and development via the performance of the above pieces. At the end of our rehearsal time, there will be a short showcase concert of the pieces in their entirety.

The BCECM’s desire is to bring young singers together and elevate their choral experience as they join with students all across the area. Using the same pieces, this workshop will be held across the province, uniting roughly 750 students in song.

There is no cost to participate, but we require registration for an accurate headcount. Schools are responsible for arranging their own transportation. We are offering a $300 bursary to help cover the cost of bussing. Teachers are expected to attend the workshop, with chaperones available to assist their choir members, should the need arise. Registration deadline is Thursday, April 9, 2020.

Please join us as we bring the young singing community of the province together and unite them in song. We hope you can join us for this experience!
