UPDATE: Due to lingering pandemic concerns, we have cancelled Unisong 2023, and are planning ahead for a tremendous return to the festival in 2024.
Uniting Canada through music.
June 28th to July 1st each year
After a hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are so excited to bring UNISONG back to life in-full in 2024. Featuring our Guest Conductor Kathleen Allan and for the first time featuring a Guest Conductor Sherryl Sewepagaham. We are currently looking for choirs from all ages, and from all parts of Canada and beyond to take part in this thrilling event.
For over 25 years UNISONG has been the hallmark Canada day event for choristers from all across the country. This year is no different with a goal to make sure every province and territory is represented. With hundreds of singers coming together in the nation's capital, this one of-a-kind experience is one you don't want to miss.
Don't believe us? We'll let the music speak for itself.
