Sirens Choral Association is pleased to announce the tenth anniversary season of Sirens and the eighth season of Harmonia Girls’ Choir. The 2022-23 year will include a series of celebratory performances from Sirens to mark this special milestone. 

Artistic Director Kelsea McLean is thrilled to be leading the ensemble during this occasion: “Our 10th season is a celebration of Sirens’ history! This anniversary season will see Sirens singing our most treasured and iconic choral pieces. When thinking about the last decade, we wanted to highlight music that defines our journey, but also acknowledges where we are now.”

She adds, “It is absolutely surreal to be entering our 10th season. What started as a small group of women wanting a place to sing, has grown to a thriving singing community. Since our first concert, we have expanded our programming, increased our following, released an album, and performed on the national stage. We are thrilled to be celebrating a decade of Sirens!”

Sirens’ season kicks off at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Charlottetown on December 10 with “A Winter’s Night” a concert presented in collaboration with Atlantic String Machine. Together the ensembles will explore themes of isolation, darkness and cold, while celebrating the hope that comes with experiencing winter’s wrath.

Sirens will pay tribute to ten years of song in “Singers’ Choice” on March 25 at Park Royal United Church in Charlottetown. Sirens singers have selected their cherished pieces from past seasons to create an eclectic program in celebration of the ensemble’s tenth anniversary. The concert will include performances of Sirens’ three previously commissioned works: Lost Voices by Richard Covey, Sorrow Song of Whales by Jeff Enns, and In Her Image by Katerina Gimon.

In June 2023, Sirens will round out its tenth anniversary season with “Spark!”  This special collection of songs observes music’s place in our community and will include the world-premiere of Elegy by Margaret King. Current Sirens singers will be joined on stage by Harmonia Girls’ Choir, Sirens alumni, and the board members of Sirens Choral Association Inc. Complete details will be announced at a future date.

Harmonia Girls’ Choir is Sirens’ principal education program for young singers. The ensemble’s first performance, “The Frost,”  takes place at Park Royal United Church on December 17. Singing of the changing seasons, the choir will also perform holiday favourites. Harmonia closes out  its season on April 29 with “You have Made Me, Earth” at Park Royal United Church. Harmonia will honour the beauty of nature in this spring performance.

Stay tuned for ticket information in the weeks to come!

Harmonia is a choir for self-identifying girls who love to sing. It provides a safe place where girls can have fun, make new friends, and discover the joys of singing in a group. The ensemble is starting its eighth season and is now accepting new singers.

Sirens Choral Association (SCA) runs Harmonia as its principal educational program. The group will provide meaningful educational opportunities for singers, while maintaining the health and safety protocols recommended by the Chief Public Health Office.

Under the leadership of Kelsea McLean, artistic director, and Andrea Ellis, assistant director and pianist, Harmonia’s programming includes two choirs: Harmonia Junior for self-identifying girls aged 10-14, and Harmonia Senior for self-identifying girls aged 14-19. New in the 2022-23 season, Harmonia is pleased to offer the Athena Mentorship Programming, providing senior singers with the opportunity to rehearse and perform with Sirens.

In past seasons, Harmonia has participated in local music festivals, earning the Community Youth Choir Award in 2017 and 2018 at the Queen’s County Music Festival, and Connie and Bud Ings Award for Youth Choir at the PEI Kiwanis Music Festival in 2018. Harmonia has collaborated with Sirens and the PEI Symphony Orchestra, and has performed at Province House, Music Monday, and PEI Junior Honour Choir events.
