Harmonia is accepting new members for the 2019-2020 season!

Now entering its fifth season, Harmonia is Sirens’ premiere educational program for girls between the ages of 11-18. Have fun, make new friends, and discover the joys of singing in a group – Harmonia is a community where girls can feel safe to find their voices through music. Focus is placed on strong vocal technique, musicianship, and music theory, all while having fun, of course! Harmonia is under the direction of Kelsea McLean, with pianist Andrea Ellis, both experienced music educators.

“Harmonia is my favourite activity any of my kids have ever taken. My daughter is always singing! She loves the girls in the choir. She loves Kelsea and Andrea. She is learning so much. The concerts are wonderful. My wife and I thank our stars every day that the Sirens have developed this educational service aspect to their choir. She will return, 100%. Her little sister can’t wait to be a Harmonia girl, too.” – Harmonia parent, 2017-present

Award-winning PEI women’s choral ensemble will be joined by Aeolian Singers from Halifax

Rounding out its 2018-19 season, Sirens will present “Sea Songs” this May, along with the ever-popular Aeolian Singers from Halifax, NS. Billed as Maritime women singing Maritime songs, this concert will feature music based on folklore, water, and life near the ocean.

Sirens and the Aeolian Singers will perform works, both separately and together, that explore the triumphs and tragedies of the sea, as a bringer of the mystical, as well as danger, freedom, adventure, and community. From well-known folk songs such as “Maid on the Shore” and to classical works like Holst’s “Hymn to the Waters,” there will be something for everyone.
