Momentum set to belong, believe, inspire with Congress performance
Published on May 29 2014
Canada’s largest academic conference will have Momentum to help finish a busy schedule.
Momentum, a performance choir comprised of more than 50 adults with an intellectual disability, is set to perform Friday, May 30 (12 noon - 1 p.m.) at the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre. It’s one of the final events slated for the 2014 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Brock University. Admission is free and open to the public.
“Brock is the upper-level education institution in this region, so we are pumped,” said Mendelt Hoekstra, the choir’s founder and current artistic and executive director.
Started seven years ago with the help of Bethesda Community Service and a provincial grant, the choir is described by Hoekstra as “highly disciplined (and) professionally facilitated.”
