Indian River Festival Chorus

Sirens Choral Association Inc. is pleased to work in partnership with the Indian River Festival to present the the Indian River Festival Chorus (IRFC) each summer.

A great tradition since the Festival’s inception, the Indian River Festival Chorus is a 50 mixed-voice choir that comes together each spring to prepare for a featured performance. From Montague to O’Leary, our singers come from across the province and are brought together by a love of singing. Ensemble members are active within the Island’s choral community, performing with groups such as the Summerside Community Choir, The Amabilè Singers, the Confederation Singers, Forte Men’s Choir, A Joyful Sound, and more.

Indian River Festival Chorus, July 2019

 

Sirens Choral Association Inc. is mandated to provide accessible programs to singers from across the Island, as well as create a network of choral singers. In working with the Indian River Festival, singers will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform in a world class venue, and share the stage with renowned choirs from across the country.

The Indian River Festival Chorus is an unauditioned ensemble for soprano, alto, tenor and bass voices. Singers should have previous experience singing in choral ensembles, and a basic understanding of reading music. Focus is placed on vocal development, musicianship, and having fun! Rehearsals take place in both Charlottetown and Indian River from April to July.

This year, the Indian River Festival Chorus will perform in collaboration with the Université de Moncton Music Department to present Carmina Burana on July 12.
