1 VIRTUAL CHOIR

SING THE NORTH is a national virtual choir for Canada.

We run projects designed to lift people out of isolation, to bring them together into community with people beyond their region, and to raise their voices safely in harmony with musicians across our land.

Through our series of concerts, each located virtually in a different geographical area of Canada, we aim to carry our singers off on a choral odyssey like no other across the vast and diverse musical landscape that we call home.

SING THE NORTH boldly sings as a national force across musical, cultural, linguistic, and provincial boundaries.

Inspired by the colossal, changeable, and sometimes dangerous geography of the North that hosts but challenges Canadians, we sing in friendship, but with an urgency to harmonise – to come together, to sing out, to hear others, to celebrate, and to learn.

Our choristers sing across frontiers from home with some of the most exciting folk, indigenous, classical, and country musicians working in Canada today. Everyone is welcome to SING THE NORTH, whatever your background, wherever you may live across our land or around the world.

Hear our land, learn your part, raise your voice, harmonise.

SING THE NORTH welcomes you.

X-Canada Choir Tour

Beginning in September 2020, SING THE NORTH is making a virtual Cross-Canada choir tour – a series of singing projects that will explore the sounds and sites of our land from coast to coast to coast.

Our X-Canada Tour starts and finishes in our beautiful Arctic Region. In between, we’re crossing the country from West to East, collaborating with a different solo artist, band, composer, or choir in each location.

Catch the SING THE NORTH Tour Bus and come sing with us. Unfold our virtual map, choose your concerts and join us, wherever you may be.

 

STN Feature Choirs

To celebrate the thousands of community and professional choirs that keep choral music alive across Canada, we will be partnering with community choirs on many of our SING THE NORTH projects.

Our STN Feature Choirs are promoted through our website, get highlighted in our videos and retain our support throughout the tour in the form of a national listing for your events, CDs, personnel and fundraising projects.

Would you like to showcase your choir, and celebrate your music director and pianists, on our national platform?

Apply to be an STN Feature Choir!

Meet our Team

 

SING THE NORTH was created by Kathryn Whitney & Daniel Taylor – two friends who met teaching on summer singing programs on Vancouver Island.

Kathryn & Daniel share a desire to get choristers singing together safely, a passion for Canadian music and musicians, and a wanderlust for travel across our beautiful and diverse country that can be done virtually, musically, together.

We hope you will join Kathryn & Daniel, and all our Guest Artists and Feature Choirs, on the inaugural STN X-Canada Tour.
