Video: Singing In Harmony – International Day Against Racism

Updated: Thank you for joining us for the broadcast! A replay of the concert is below.
When Canadian pianist Oscar Peterson, one of the world’s foremost jazz musicians, wrote Hymn to Freedom, he might not have imagined it being sung by three choirs in Nova Scotia (one predominantly black, one mostly white and the third a multicultural choir of new Canadians), but he would have been pleased!


On Sunday, March 21 from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., haligonia.ca, Halifax’s hyper-local online broadcaster will live stream Singing in Harmony, as three choirs join their voices to celebrate the rich diversity of Nova Scotia. The choirs include the ISIS Singers (Immigrant Settlement Association), the Studio Singers (Chester), and the Sanctified Brothers (men’s gospel choir under the direction of Wallace Smith Jr.) plus members of the Hallelujah Praise Choir and the Emmanuel Baptist Choir.

In addition, Nova Scotians representing black, white, French and First Nations will join the singing and present performances.  Soloists include Mi’kmaq drummer Nathan Sack, Pat Watson, Marko Simmonds and Warren Laws.

Choir members and haligonia.ca invite viewers to start watching Singing in Harmony at 5:00 p.m. live, as the event begins.

Singing in Harmony, directed by Dawn Harwood-Jones of Pink Dog Production Inc. and haligonia.ca, is funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and sponsored by haligonia.ca and ISIS (Immigrant Settlement and Integration Services.
