VIDEO FROM MASSED CHOIR WORKSHOP 2017
In April 2017, the Barrie Music Festival Association held a Choral Workshop with Dr. Gerard Yun on the song “One Voice”. 9 different choirs of all ages and abilities came together and created the soundtrack for this video. We feel that this track and the accompanying photos represent the overall goals of the Barrie Music Festival Association, in bringing music to all people, from students of all abilities, giving them a chance to grow and learn from their musical experiences.
