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.

On their feet - everyone singing and dancing to the beat!

Big Soul Project ended 2018 with a jubilant Christmas Concert at Dominion-Chalmers Church. At the end of the concert, we had everyone in the audience (800+) singing and dancing!

Not only did the audiences of our Christmas Concert and Rehearsal join the choir in lifting all our hearts in song, but they donated an amazing $5,700 for the Ottawa Food Bank! A very generous donor matched this for a total donation of $11,400. Since each dollar raised turns into five dollars of buying power, this translates into $57,000 worth of food to help people get beyond hunger – pretty amazing!

What you may not know is that we use our Christmas ticket sales to perform benefit concerts for many grass-root charities. In 2018, Big Soul raised $37,000 to fund programs for women and girls' education and work in Uganda and Tanzania, settling refugee families here in Ottawa, and supporting local street youth.
