Every year, MB Sings brings nearly 300 singers of all ages from across the province together for an inspiring weekend of group singing directed by guest conductors from across North America.
Established in 1982, MB Sings is MCA's longest-running program and draws nearly 300 singers from across The Singing Province and beyond every year for an inspiring weekend of music and community-building with accomplished and respected conductors from across the continent.
Formerly known as Provincial Honour Choirs, MB Sings singers participate in two days of intensive rehearsals learning interesting and challenging repertoire, and then share what they’ve learned with families and friends in a finale concert.
The MB Sings program has three choirs corresponding to age:
Junior Choir (singers in grades 5 - 8)
Senior Choir (singers in grades 9 - 12)
Adult Choir (ages 18+)
There are no auditions to join the MB Sings Choirs and registration is open to all singers Grades 5 and up, regardless of experience or singing ability! There is something for everyone in this exciting program!
