Joining Together in Song

Intercultural Choral Festival in Winnipeg brings choirs from 6 different cultural backgrounds together.


On March 16, Manitoba Great Wall Performing Arts Inc. (MGWPA) and Manitoba Choral Association (MCA) were thrilled to co-host the intercultural choral festival Together in Song.  The first-ever collaboration between the two organizations, the event was a resounding success that brought together several choirs from different cultural backgrounds for a celebration of music, language, and food.

The concert featured six Winnipeg choirs from different languages and cultures, representing Anishinaabe, Ukrainian, Filipino, Francophone, Nigerian, and Chinese singers from this part of the province. The choirs included: RCCG Dominion Sanctuary Parish Nigerian Choir, La Chorale des Intrépides, Manitoba Chinese Choir, Musica Singers, Oberih Ukrainian Choir, and Zoongi Ogichidaa Anishinaabe Ikwezensag Nagamoog (Strong Anishinaabe Warrior Girls' Singers).


Each choir performed selections from their cultures and in the true spirit of togetherness, singers from Winnipeg and beyond were also invited to participate in the mass finale performance of “You Raise Me Up,” conducted by Jorrel Camuyong. View the concert program here or visit the MCA YouTube channel to check out all the fantastic performances.
This special event demonstrated just how powerful music is at bringing people TOGETHER. MGWPA and MCA would like to say a huge thank-you to all of the singers and choirs for sharing their music, as well as a big thank-you to our incredible audience for supporting choral music!

Together in Song was part of the Winnipeg 150: City of Song initiative, a yearlong project of choral events to engage Winnipeggers in group singing to celebrate the city’s milestone anniversary in 2024. Learn more at www.cityofsong.ca.
