$16,000 raised for the Ottawa Food Bank

Big Soul Project produced and performed their annual Christmas Concert at Carleton Dominion Chalmers Centre after 3 years of pandemic closures. The theme "Let's Celebrate!" was aptly named for everyone, choir, band, and audience alike, as we all felt very joyous during and after both the open dress rehearsal and the full concert.

Funds were raised within the choir to welcome guests to our concert who might not have otherwise been able to attend and we were so pleased they could share this joyful event with us.

This year we are thrilled to announce that between the two concerts BSP was able to raise $8,000 for the Ottawa Food Bank which was matched by an anonymous donor bringing the total to $16,000!! A reason to celebrate indeed.

We are looking forward to the next season and the opportunity to sing for other good causes in the Ottawa area. Hope to see you there!

Big Soul Project Double-Header Weekend with Grammas to Ambuyas and Coco Love Alcorn

Posted on October 16, 2017

On the weekend of October 14-15, 2017, Big Soul Project performed two concerts with Coco Love Alcorn, a wonderful singer song-writer from Owen Sound.

On Saturday October 14, BSP performed a fundraiser concert organized by Grammas to Ambuyas to help raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign to help millions of children orphaned by the AIDS crisis. Directed by BSP musical Director Roxanne Goodman with special guest artist Coco Love Alcorn, the concert raised over $9000.

The following day, Sunday October 15, members of BSP sang several songs with Coco Love Alcorn at her concert at St. Brigid’s Centre for the Performing Arts, to promote her new album “Wonderland”. Coco says that the songs on that album are an “invitation to connect”. BSP was thrilled to connect with Coco and to be part of the experience.

BSP is looking forward to singing with Coco again at our upcoming Christmas concert on December 16, 2017, at Dominion-Chalmers United Church. Tickets are available online and are going fast.
