The Nova Scotia Mass Choir is a two-time East Coast Music Award-winning multicultural gospel choir based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The choir performs locally, nationally and internationally, reaching audiences unfamiliar with the genre of black gospel music and drawing attention to some of the cultural contributions of African Nova Scotians. Their repertoire includes arrangements of traditional gospel and folk music as well as original compositions, and the choir has worked with a range of well-known composers and musical directors. As part of their outreach work, the choir performs several benefit concerts each year in support of charitable causes and racial harmony, including an annual tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.
