Mass Appeal 2018
Mass Appeal’s third year saw five concerts held in different areas of Winnipeg, both indoors and out. We started at St. Vital Park with a ukulele concert beside the Duck Pond, complete with campfire at the écobouage public art installation.
Brandon University School of Music professor Leanne Zacharias conducted an ensemble of violins, violas and cellos in the atrium of the Millennium Library on September 15.
The Accordion concert led by Stephen Kiz was rained out on September 20, but you can’t keep a few determined musicians down so they relocated from the outdoor location at Albert & Arthur to the interior of Red Rover College’s Exchange District campus and performed there.
Travellers landing at Winnipeg International Airport on September 27 were treated to an unexpected surprise as they came down the escalator to the arrivals level, where a choir awaited them with songs on the theme of Home.
Mass Appeal 2018 closed out with participatory percussion at Pantages Plaza on Saturday September 29 as part of Culture Days. Grammy nominee and proud Winnipegger Scott Senior provided all the materials to crate homemade instruments and passers-by delighted in joining in the fun.
