$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!

In July, BSP wowed the crowd of over 1000 at Lansdowne Park!

On a beautiful Sunday evening in July, we opened our hearts and voices at our 4th annual community concert at Lansdowne Park. We wowed a crowd of 1000+, who boogied and clapped to our uplifting songs. Leading the way was our very own Deep Groove Band and soloists, with musical direction by our ever-spirited Roxanne Goodman. Members of the audience even joined the choir for a song. Truly, a concert of many with one beat and one heart in celebration of life! A big thanks to our MC, the eloquent Sarah Onyango of CHUO 89.1, and to the City of Ottawa for sponsoring the Lansdowne Summer Arts Series.

Our next performance will be a benefit concert for Arise and Shine Uganda, an incredible charity providing homes for Ugandan orphans and supporting girls and women from cradle to adulthood. It’s on Saturday evening, September 29th. Stay tuned!
