A breathtaking new release from Revv52 of Calgary, Alberta recorded and performed virtually to celebrate Canada Day 2020. The opening Prelude is an original composition beginning with the Cree word ‘Mâmawi’ – meaning “All together”. The orchestral arrangement by Artistic Director John Morgan sets the stage for the beautiful poetry about Canada’s journey, potential, and hopes for the future from Governor General award-winner Richard Harrison.



MEDIAPOP was brought in to film the soloist portion of this incredibly moving rendition by Revv52 of O Canada which was shared and viewed widely across Canada. From a creative perspective, Revv52 Artistic Director John Morgan wanted Akina (Cree) to emerge from black into light. Instead of doing it in post, we timed the lights to rise behind Akina as the Revv52 members joined.
