Sounds of the Next Generation (SONG)

Cobourg, ON


Sounds of the Next Generation (SONG)​ is Northumberland County's only children's charity promoting social development through the pursuit of musical excellence. SONG is a free, after-school el Sistema program for children and youth ages 6-13 that believes the singing voice is everyone's primary instrument, and that singing in a group is one of the best ways to build community and connection. Through high-calibre choral and orchestral ensemble instruction, children and youth who wouldn't otherwise be able to access music education excel in learning transferable skills in social engagement, inclusiveness, communication, and leadership.
