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

Posted on January 8, 2019

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. 

Now’s the time to mark your calendars for our 2019 concerts. Roxanne Goodman, our Music Director and confidence booster par excellence, is already firing up the choir with a stellar repertoire of new songs for our 2019 concerts. Each concert will be distinctly different so we hope you’ll come out to them all! Here they are:
