Established in 1982, MB Sings is MCA's longest-running program and draws over 200 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!
WHAT OUR SINGERS SAY
Over the years, the MB Sings program has had a profound impact on the lives of singers across our province. Here are just a few things participants have shared with us, when asked why they like coming to MB Sings:
"I love meeting choir people from all around the province."
"I enjoy singing with a whole bunch of different people, and seeing what we can put together during a weekend."
"I get to spend an entire weekend singing with others that love choir."
"It's super fun!"
"It connects me to people who are like me, I feel welcome and loved."
