$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 shares our special joyful music at Lansdowne Park

Posted on September 6, 2019

For four years, Big Soul Project has been sharing our special joyful music on a Sunday evening at Lansdowne Park.  This free concert is part of the City of Ottawa's Summer Arts Showcase series.  This year we had perfect weather with sunny skies, and a light breeze.  What better way to spend a summer evening than enjoying music outside?  It's so fun to see people wandering over, attracted by the sound of our singing, with surprised and happy expressions on their faces!  BSP always gets wonderful feedback from our audience after the concert.  This letter from an anonymous BSP fan sums it up perfectly.  

"You could feel the love of singing through your members with their flow of body movements and energetic expressions.  Your inclusion of audience participation created a group yet personal experience." 

"Ottawa is fortunate to have Big Soul Project among the community choir scene.  Your motto "Lifting you Higher" certainly applies to your vibrant organization and your members.  Your concert was uplifting and spiritual."  

A big Thank-You to our anonymous fan from Big Soul Project.
