The Singing Network is the starting point for creating and building a MUN-provincial-national-international network of individuals and organizations interested in singing and song: scholars, performing artists, educators, 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, the formation of new ensembles, and a biennial International Symposium on Singing and Song.


Upcoming Events


Due to the uncertainties related to vaccines and international travel, we are unable to proceed with our plans to have a Canadian presence at Europa Cantat 2021.


Nevertheless, Europa Cantat is still happening and we strongly encourage you to attend this extraordinary festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 16-25 July 2021.
