The Singers Helping Singers (SHS) Initiative raises funds for representatives from Manitoba to participate in the National Youth Choir held in Montreal at Podium, Canada’s National Choral Conference, May 2020. Currently, MCA is the only province to fully support its representatives. Additionally, funds will go toward supporting MCA’s flagship programs. Member choirs are asked to pass the hat during rehearsals throughout the month of October so singers may contribute a toonie to help other singers participate in both provincial and national choral events. $4225 has already been raised through pass-the-hat initiatives at 2018-2019 concerts to support National Youth Choir. Our fundraising goal is $5000.00. Choirs that have participated to date are:
Brandon University Chorale
Musaico/Ecco Singers
University of Manitoba Choirs
Winnipeg Beer Choir
