Back in July, Sirens ended it’s 2017-18 season with a series of appearances at Podium conference and festival in St John’s, Newfoundland.

Podium is Choral Canada’s national, biennial conference and festival. Podium on the Edge: Singing from Sea to Sea to Sea was held for the first time ever this year in St John’s, Newfoundland.

Sirens was invited to perform at a Highlight concert. The ensemble appeared before a packed house of more than 500 people at St. John’s Cochran Center. The group premiered a new work by composer Jeff Enns with lyrics by PEI’s Poet Laureate Deirdre Kessler called “Sorrow Song for Whales.” Kessler based her lyrics on a Mi’kmaq legend as told by Elder Matilda Knockwood.

Sirens also had the opportunity to perform alongside some of Canada’s premiere equal-voice choirs including Elektra (BC), Vancouver Men’s Chorus (BC), and Primus: Amabile Men’s Chorus (ON).

Praise has been pouring in since Sirens’ Podium premiere with invitations to perform coming in from across Canada and as far away as Slovenia.

The ladies took a well-deserved break for the summer, and will beginning rehearsals soon to perform “Sorrow Song for Whales” for Island audiences this November. Full season details will be announced shortly!

Sirens would not have made it to Newfoundland without the support of its stakeholders – Sponsorship provided in part by the Terra Nova fund and PEI Symphony Orchestra, and Innovation PEI and the Culture Action Plan.
