Under the terms outlined by Prince Edward Island’s Chief Public Health Office, Sirens Choral Association (SCA) Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of its 2019-2020 season. This includes all activities for Sirens, Harmonia Girls’ Choir, and the Indian River Festival Chorus, as well as the postponement of the release of Sirens’ debut album “Boundless”.
This was a difficult and heartbreaking decision for Sirens Organizing Committee and Board of Directors. In times like these, our organization feels an obligation to share with our audiences, and engage our singers with music-making – it just feels unnatural not to be singing together. However, it is our top priority to protect the health of our singers, audience members and stakeholders; after all, “the best way we can come together right now is by staying apart.”
SCA is hopeful that we will resume regular activity in September, and begin preparing for an exciting concert season in 2020-2021. We look forward to health, and gathering as a community someday soon!
Sirens cabaret evening is back by popular demand! “Crazy in Love” will take place on Saturday, February 15th at 7:00 pm at The Guild in Charlottetown.
This event will be a departure from the usual Sirens concert. In keeping with the cabaret feel, there will be folk, pop, jazz, and musical theatre selections sung by soloists, duos, and small groups. Singers will be joined by Stephanie Cole at the piano and other special musical guests. The ensemble will also perform some surprise tunes for the audience. To round out the evening, there will be a silent auction with a number of prizes from local businesses and artisans.
Proceeds from the event will go toward the production of Sirens’ first full-length album “Boundless.” The group recorded the album in December with noted producer Jeff Reilly of Halifax. Captured in the beautiful acoustics of the Church of St. Bonaventure in Tracadie Cross, the recording is now in post-production and will be released in the first half of 2020.
Join the ladies for a night of music that will be sure to make you laugh, cry, smile, and maybe even swoon. This event often sells out, so if you plan to treat your sweetheart, be sure reserve your spot early.
