Songs of the City is a special evening of compelling speakers and songwriters that tells the transformative stories of everyday people whose lives have been impacted because of your ongoing support of United Way. Songs of the City is a celebration of our community, and a thank you for your help in making it a better place for everyone who lives here.
These inspiring narratives will tell the transformative stories of people right here in our community whose lives have been changed because of your support of the United Way. Local musicians Kylie Fox, Pallmer, Matt Comeau, The Olympic Symphonium and Fredericton’s Poet Laureate Jordan Trethewey have composed new music and poems exclusively for this event to thank United Way donors and to tell the story of their impact. Stories will be shared from Apatawsuwikuwam Health Centre, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fredericton and Oromocto, Habitat for Humanity, and Liberty Lane.
This free event is presented in partnership with Shivering Songs Festival.

Songs of the City is an incredibly special event, one like none other in Fredericton. Emotional and inspirational stories paired with breathtaking music and song, it’s an evening difficult to forget. These stories are just a sampling of the courage, strength and resilience that can be found in our community. Every person in our community has a story, and thanks to your support and donations we can continue to help individuals have a hot meal, a friend, or support during a tough time. None of these people would be here today without the support they received during their darkest hours. None of these people would be here without you.
