Unisong Update

The MHC Girls' Choir is on tour in Ottawa taking part in the Unisong festival. So far we have done a small concert at the National Arts Centre and an evening concert at a local church. We have also been rehearsing with 11 other choirs en mass to prepare for three large gala concerts on July 1, Canada Day. As of this moment, we are waiting to hear if the Queen will be in attendance at one of our performances.

Needless to say, our days have been jam packed; we are only on day three but it feels like we have been on the go much longer. We have made some amazing music, met some amazing people and are having a great time!

The chaperones may be a little sleepy. Maybe tonight's meeting won't go so late:

MHC Girls' Choir on CHAT TV

CHECK THIS OUT!  The MHC Girls' Choir is heading to Ottawa from June 28 to July 2 to take part in the Unisong festival.  Unisong stands for "United in Song" - we will meet up with other choirs from across the country to join together and perform three concerts on Canada Day in our nation's capital!

Because of this incredible opportunity, we were featured on the CHAT TV news broadcast on May 26, 2010.  Check it out:

It was fun to have this exposure and in typical media fasion, they got a few little things screwed up in the story, but in general, its all good!  ENJOY!  Check back here for updates on how things go in Ottawa!
