Legislative Assembly of Alberta Invites Albertans to sing O Canada

Category: News

Edmonton – Are you a singing sensation? Whether you sing in a school choir, a band or are simply a great singer, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta is inviting you to put your name forward to sing our national anthem in the Assembly.

“The Legislature is the people’s house; we want to give Albertans an opportunity to share their voices,” said the Honourable Nathan Cooper. “I encourage Albertans to let us know if they are interested in singing O Canada to help MLAs begin their important work every week.”

During session, the 87 Members of the Assembly are led in the singing of O Canada every Monday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Traditionally the song has been led by an anthem singer, but the Assembly hopes to see more community participants lend their voices to this important task.

Singers who would like to put their name(s) forward can contact the Speaker’s Office by email at officeofthespeaker@assembly.ab.ca. Performances will be scheduled starting in May 2022.
