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.

Join The Singing Network in Ljubljana, Slovenia, for a special Canadian presence at Europa Cantat 2021


Europa Cantat, one of the largest, non-competitive choral festivals worldwide, is taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 16-25 July 2021. Held only once every three years, this is a musical event not to be missed. Best of all, any choir or individual, amateur – professional, interested in participating, can do so!


The Singing Network co-founders, having attended previous Europa Cantat festivals in Italy, Hungary, and Estonia, want to share this experience with more of our Canadian choral colleagues and music enthusiasts.
