More about THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver

THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver builds on the launch and success of “Vancouver Sings One Song” (VSOS) 2018 when our new Festival song, Cherry Blossoms For You & Me, was born. Last year we brought together 350 voices from 30 registered choirs across our diverse communities! THE BIG SING Metro Vancouver is open to everyone regardless of one’s musical background or skill level. This new project is a means of artistic expression for individuals with a desire and enthusiasm to sing which meets the Festival mandate to promote active community engagement through arts and culture.
