The Singing Network is a Memorial University-based international network of individuals and organizations interested in singing and song: scholars, performing artists, educators, health and wellness practitioners, composers, conductors and students… as well as professional and community-based musicians, organizations, and associations. The network generates and produces a series of voice-singing-choral events ranging from workshops, seminars, master-classes, performances, dialogues, and the International Symposium on Singing and Song. The mission of this professional organization is to promote choral activities in our province by providing resources, learning opportunities, advocacy, and communications to choral communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. The Singing Network also has an international outreach in partnering with international choral organizations/events. In 2019 and 2022, The Singing Network collaborated with the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM) to present the EXchange! as an integral component of the World Choral EXPO.
