About this event

  • 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket

Join in as we welcome a new year and lift our spirits in song as we work for a just and sustainable planet.

Cassie Norton, Nigel Bariff and Felicity Williams will lead us in learning and singing several songs for the Mother Earth.

This event is not your traditional choir practice - this will be an open participation group where anybody who wants to attend an event is welcome to perform as part of the choir. Cassie and Nigel will have you singing like you do in the shower (but better because there will be harmony!).

Bonus: Singers from Whole Village will lead us in a round of Do It Now - a special tribute to Douglas Ford and his Greenbelt plan.

The Sing-A-Long from 1:00pm to - 3:00 p.m. will be followed by a mix and mingle where you can enjoy some light refreshments and enjoy the company of your new musical friends.

This is for all ages and abilities - you DO NOT need to have any previous choir experience. All are welcome.

Tickets are on a pay-what-you-can basis with all proceeds going to support the work of Climate Fast and the Unitarian Congregation in Mississuaga.
