Named after the singing femmes fatales of Greek Mythology, Sirens is a new vocal ensemble of seven experienced choral singers. These young women are excited to present their first program “New Beginnings” on Sunday, May 5.

The members of Sirens have a passion for collaborative music making and come from extensive backgrounds in choral singing, including the National Youth Choir of Canada, Nova Scotia Youth Choir, the Montreal Symphony Chorus, the Saskatoon Chamber Singers, the Festival Ensemble of Stuttgart and the Confederation Singers. Without a conductor, the singers rely on their musical instincts to create an intimate experience for their audience.

“New Beginnings” will feature contemporary choral compositions, haunting folk melodies, and lively spirituals. Sirens will take its audience through settings of well-known texts, including The Prayer of St. Francis, and end with a musical theatre inspired piece that tells the story of Alice in Wonderland. The program highlights the beauty of a cappella harmonies while featuring pianist Frances McBurnie in several numbers.

“New Beginnings” will take place on Sunday, May 5, 7:30 pm at Trinity United Church in Charlottetown. Admission is “give what you can.” Visit http://sirenschoir.com to learn more.
