Kitchener Auditorium - April 2013
I am a huge Trencher! I gathered 10 of my choir buddies and submitted for a contest to be on stage with MT during their cross-Canada tour.
We put together a medley consisting of two songs: Stutter and Fall Out.
WE WON THE CONTEST!! one of the most amazing days for me!
We did rehearsals, sound check, hung out with the band for hours, sang in the dressing room with Josh Ramsey!
The performance of a lifetime! over 7,000 crazy Trenchers having a huge party! My sister (Riley) and I had the most incredible evening with MT!
Cirque du Soleil / Me to We Day
Air Canada Centre - Sept 2012
Selected members of our rep choir were selected to perform a choral piece background while the Cirque du Soleil were performing during the Me to We day!
Nelly Furtado and K'Naan were the headliners!
We also got to take the microphone and address the 20,000+ students in attendance and mention a statement on how we are going to save and protect our water sources.
it was a very emotional connection, as such a few years back, I was one of those students sitting in the stands watching this amazing performance!
