Tec Voc's Multilingual O Canada!
During the Spring of 2017, Tec Voc music students created a multilingual version of "O Canada" to commemorate Canada's 150th year of confederation! Our goal at the time was to represent the student body of Tec Voc High School by incorpor - ating multiple languages including Cree, English, French, Ojibway, and Tagalog in our opening exercises. Faith Bage, Mallorie Richard, and Bryce Vindicacion were the driving forces behind the project and in the fall of 2017, the CBC interviewed those involved in it's creation and aired our recording nationally. Our arrangement went viral with over 650,000 social media views and since then, we have been invited to perform at multiple venues including the WestCAST Conference (University of Manitoba), the Manitoba School Boards Convention, the Young Humanitarians Awards Ceremony, an immigration ceremony at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, and a Winnipeg Blue Bombers Football Game! Most recently, the CTV has approached us and we are very excited to share our latest gender neutral version with them that also includes Inuktitut and has been arranged for our choir!
