The Winnipeg Youth Chorus and Margaret’s Choir are teaming together this month to present an aptly titled benefit concert, Hope, co-presented with the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba. The 90-minute program being held May 24 at 7 p.m. at the Centennial Concert Hall will feature an eclectic evening of inspiring music, sung with gusto by 280 dedicated choristers aged seven to 70-plus, accompanied by pianists Charmaine Bacon and Katie Erickson. All proceeds will go to the non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating the stigma of mood disorders and improved mental health for all.

"Working with the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba to raise money for their numerous life-saving programs is such a great opportunity. And, of course, using the language of music, which everybody understands, is key," Poole says.
