This year’s arts award recipient, Soo Sings for Kids, has raised $120,000 for local charities over the past ten years by bringing Saultites together in the power of song and dance.
Soo Sings for Kids, a workplace song and dance competition that has raised money for local children’s charities for the past 10 years, is this year’s Arts Award winner.
Soo Sings for Kids has not only made a difference to local charities, it has helped shine a light on talented people in our community, exemplified the power of song, dance and performance and encouraged many people who may not have previously considered the arts. Get involved and find their passion.
Everyone involved from the performers, vocal mentors, choreographers, judges, masters of ceremonies and executive planning committee are dedicated volunteers to bring the community together and build camaraderie at work.
For many participants, this is their first time on stage, but certainly not their last. Many went on to join local community theater programs and became lively performers in Salt’s theater productions. Soo Sings for Kids helps participants build confidence in auditioning and pursuing dance, music and theater as a passion.
This in turn helps build our community’s arts offering and local base of talent.
The Arts Award is presented to an individual who has helped strengthen the local arts community by championing a person, event, idea, policy or philosophy.
Congratulations to the team at Soo Sings for Kids!
