Co-presented with the Canadian Music Centre

This Spring we will bring Metro Vancouver together in harmony to share in the joy of singing as part of a large group. We’re inviting choirs and individuals to join our new free choral event for an uplifting and exhilarating experience, THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver.

See the 2018 event video produced by Keith Blackmore, where participants ages 3 to 83 had an exhilarating experience!

More about THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver

THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver builds on the launch and success of “Vancouver Sings One Song” (VSOS) 2018 when our new Festival song, Cherry Blossoms For You & Me, was born. Last year we brought together 350 voices from 30 registered choirs across our diverse communities! THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver is open to everyone regardless of one’s musical background or skill level. This new project is a means of artistic expression for individuals with a desire and enthusiasm to sing which meets the Festival mandate to promote active community engagement through arts and culture.

Inspired by this Festival Haiku Invitational poem:

blossoms bursting
each tree is a choir
singing to the sun
