Update from BSP...

During the COVID19 pandemic Big Soul Project continues to meet for practice every Monday evening only now, like so many other choirs, we practice virtually. We have found ways to make our Zoom practices fun and engaging! See us singing One Voice, our first recording from the spring of 2020. 

BSP continues to welcome new names on the waiting list during this time. Join the Choir

We would normally be gearing up for and eagerly anticipating the annual holiday concert at Dominion Chalmers which was scheduled for December 12th. Instead we are preparing to unveil a Holiday Celebration video presentation which will be revealed here on December 12th and available to view at your leisure from that day forward. We will be accepting donations to a local charity for this event.

Our Director

ROXANNE GOODMAN

Big Soul Project welcomed Roxanne Goodman in 2008 as their Music Director. She has taken great care and diligence in developing BSP and always believes that they have the ability to inspire and entertain their audiences. Roxanne believes that empowerment comes from finding one’s unique purpose and letting it shine through. Under her direction, BSP has grown and evolved to find its own voice and sound.

In addition to her passion for music as an expression of community empowerment and inspiration, Roxanne brings a wealth of experience to this position. 

With an education in classical piano under the tutelage of international concert pianist and adjudicator the late Rose Goldblatt (formerly of McGill University), Roxanne's interest in voice and composition eventually led her to pursue studies at Concordia University where her tutors included Madeleine Thériault and Jerri Brown.

Roxanne is a well-known figure in the Ottawa musical community and was awarded the Community Engagement Award for her contribution to creating healthy communities through song. She has performed at many venues such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa’s Château Laurier, as well as international concerts. She is known as the “Atmoshere Provider” and is sought out for private functions.

Roxanne functions in many roles – teacher, musical coach, composer, singer, pianist, and motivational speaker. Yet she has the ability to make you feel that she is speaking directly to you in a crowded room.
