Sirens is pleased to return to The Indian River Festival on Sunday, June 24, 3pm for “Tales and Legends”. This will be our last PEI performance of the 2017-18 season before we head to St. John’s, NL for our debut at Podium 2018 Conference & Festival!
There will only be one performance of “Tales and Legends” – please join us and send Sirens to Newfoundland filled with the utmost choral love!
Named after the singing femmes fatales of Greek mythology, Sirens is lauded for its pure tone quality, sensitive musicality and tight ensemble. Without a conductor at the podium, haunting harmonies and subtle stage movement separates Sirens from traditional choral practices, taking its audience on an intimate and inclusive performance experience!
Enter the mythical world with haunting music that explores ancient texts, folklore and legends. “Tales and Legends” includes a special preview performance of their newly commissioned work from Canadian choral composer Jeff Enns!
An enrichment opportunity for choral singers
This summer, Sirens Choral Association Inc. is pleased to launch the Summer Sing Program! Mandated to provide educational opportunities to fellow choral musicians, we’re pleased to launch this new summer choir which will put special focus on vocal technique, ensemble singing, and fun. The choir will be lead by Sirens/Harmonia Artistic Director, Kelsea McLean, and collaborative pianist Andrea Ellis.
This 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.
Rehearsals will take place at Park Royal United Church, Charlottetown, unless otherwise noted. Singers must be able to attend the majority of rehearsals.
