$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!

Christmas concerts raise $11,231 for the Ottawa Food Bank!

Posted on December 17, 2019

$11,231 !!  That’s the amount that was raised for the Ottawa Food Bank at Big Soul Project’s Christmas concerts. 

Doing the Ottawa Food Bank math where cash donations give them five times the buying power, this means that $56,155 worth of food will be given to Ottawa families thanks to the generosity of our concert audiences and the matching donation of our very special anonymous donor.  

This year’s Christmas concert was once again filled with joyous music, meaningful moments, and even some tears.  A highlight was BSP’s stunning rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful” arranged by our Choir Director extraordinaire, Roxanne Goodman. 

Our Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre audience leapt to their feet in a spontaneous standing ovation as the choir finished its last note.

Thank you to Ellen McAteer, Sébastien Cimpaye, Zeke Gross, the Deep Groove Band, Roxanne Goodman, and to all of you who joined us in the audience in celebration and song.  Until next year!
