Celebrating song as a tool for social change movements with Polaris Choir

Featuring chants, protest songs, contemporary choral works, and a choir-created arrangement, listeners will be transported throughout the past hundred years and invited to reflect on social movements that have impacted the Nova Scotia region.

Polaris is Choirs for Change’s high-intensity adult community choir led by Jack Bennet, Sanford Hare, and Emma Norton.

*A special second performance of this event will take part during the NSGEU Convention at the Halifax Convention Centre. The performance will be free for attending NSGEU delegates and open to the general public through the purchase of $15 tickets.

Presented by the NSGEU

With support from the province of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group.
