This is a call for 15-20 Métis singers to participate in a chorus for the workshop for our new musical theatre work, Riel’s Heart of the North. The work, by Métis poet Dr. Suzanne M. Steele, and composer Neil Weisensel will be performed in 2020 in Winnipeg at Centennial Hall with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. The Métis chorus will sing in Michif, English, and French, but you do not need to know all of these languages. Practice tracks and music will be available to work with before the first rehearsal and there will be language coaches at the rehearsals. Neil Weisensel, Co-Director of World Village Gospel Choir, and the composer of Riel’s Heart of the North, will conduct the music. Some experience singing solo or in a group is expected. This project will be a very rich and rewarding experiencing and we look forward to having the local community involved in this production.

The workshop will take place in the Sanctuary of Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton St.
Sunday Aug. 12th – 6-9 pm�Thursday Aug. 16th – 6-9 pm�Sat. Aug. 18th – 1-4 pm
