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.
Due to the uncertainties related to vaccines and international travel, we are unable to proceed with our plans to have a 'live' Canadian presence at Europa Cantat 2021.
Nevertheless, Europa Cantat is still happening and we strongly encourage you to attend this extraordinary festival offered with an online component. All the festival sessions can be accessed LIVE, without a fee, through EC TV.
