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.

Big Soul Project sings in support of TEMBO fundraiser

Posted on April 23, 2018

On Saturday April 7, 2018, Big Soul Project performed a concert at Southminster United Church as a fundraiser in support of TEMBO (Tanzania Education and Micro-Business Opportunity). Ticket sales and donations combined raised a grand total of $11,800. Imagine how many lives will be changed because of this concert!

TEMBO’s mission is to raise awareness and funds to support Tanzanian partners in providing educational and micro-business opportunities for girls and women. Take a look at TEMBO’s website, and you’ll see that they are truly an inspirational organization: http://www.projectembo.org/.

At the concert, titled One Voice, audience members had the privilege of seeing a video of many TEMBO girls singing from Tanzania and of BSP singing along with them. And locally based guest artists Chipo Shambare and Hamid Ayoub added their drumming talents to the musical mix. 

*Tembo also means Elephant in Swahili, symbolizing everything that is TEMBO:

She is wise, and seemingly remembers everything, having vast stores of wisdom passed down from her elders. She ponders all things and meditates, letting Spirit and ancestor memory guide her…. Herds of Elephants are always led by the females. https://www.universeofsymbolism.com/elephant-symbolism.html
