May 15, 2023
Unison Choruses Canada is pleased to announce that 14 honourees will receive awards for service, innovation and legacy at the Unison Festival in Halifax this month. These inaugural Unison Awards will be presented at the festival banquet on Sunday, May 21, 2023, at the Halifax Convention Centre. The awards ceremony will also honor 13 member choruses that have hosted Unison Festivals in their home cities over the past 25 years, starting with the founding festival in 1998.
“The Unison Awards were established by the Board of Directors as an way to highlight, and extend gratitude to, Unison members and affiliate organizations that have gone above and beyond to build, serve, maintain, and promote 2SLGBTQIA+ choruses and the Canadian 2SLGBTQIA+ choral community. Through these awards, Unison hopes to contribute to building that legacy for years to come,” said Kimberley Vance-Mubanga, President of Unison Choruses Canada.
The recipients of the inaugural Unison Awards will be honoured in three categories.
Unison member choruses were invited to nominate one individual or organization per award category. All nominations submitted were reviewed and adjudicated by a jury.
