Sirens is kicking off 2020 with a bang on January 18th by hosting a special pre-launch event of its first full-length album “Boundless.” This captivating evening will feature a few songs from the new recording, some light refreshments, a chance to mingle with the singers, and an opportunity for people to pre-order the album.
The group recorded these works in December with noted producer Jeff Reilly of Halifax, who has shaped albums for the Canadian Chamber Choir and Xara Choral Theatre. Captured in the beautiful acoustics of the Church of St. Bonaventure in Tracadie Cross, the recording is now in post-production and should be released in the first half of 2020.
Artistic Director Kelsea McLean described the repertoire that the group recorded: “As women, we encounter obstacles in our world,” said McLean, “and these songs tell stories of suffering, but more importantly, stories about the resiliency of the human spirit. When faced with famine, imprisonment, mental illness, grief, discrimination, or insecurity, we learn to rise above our suffering. We wear our trials as a badge of honour and we are then free, or boundless.”
Be sure to join Sirens for this special evening on Saturday, January 18th at 7:00 pm at the Haviland Club in Charlottetown. Tickets for this licensed event are $10 and are available online or at the door.
