My name is David Francois, and I hail from Cobourg, Ontario.
I am reaching out to choral groups across the country to share an exciting new project for this year’s Canada 150 celebrations. The O Canada Choir is a virtual choir and concert band performance of a new arrangement of O Canada. Individuals can download sheet music and mp3 accompaniment tracks from the website, and record themselves performing their own part. These individual performance videos will be combined into one grand performance for release on YouTube and other social media platforms. Please check out the introductory video and other links below.
Of note, the “O Canada Choir Project” is the subject of a research paper by Dr. Chris Cayari of Purdue University. Participants will have the opportunity to be involved in the academic study of community music creation using the internet.
