|Post subject:||Sirens presents "L.O.V.E."|
This May, the women's choral ensemble Sirens will deliver two performances of its spring concert, L.O.V.E., on Friday, May 29th, 7:30pm at Park Royal United Church, Charlottetown and Sunday, May 31st, 2:00pm at Kings Playhouse, Georgetown.
Join Sirens as they celebrate spring, the season of love, in song. L.O.V.E. will explore the emotion in its many forms, from the excitement of new love, to the comforts of mature love, and love of place. Between pieces, members of the group will share their favourite love stories with the audience.
The performances will include a variety of songs for all musical tastes. Contemporary compositions will be featured alongside pop standards such as Mister Sandman and When I'm 64. Arrangements of folk songs Log Driver's Waltz and Shenandoah parallel colourful madrigals. Violinist Sean Kemp will join Sirens for Eric Whitacre's Five Hebrew Love Songs. Of course, the program will include an arrangement of Nat King Cole's L.O.V.E.
Named after the singing femmes fatales of Greek mythology, Sirens is a self-directed women’s choral ensemble committed to fostering the development of choral music through performance and community involvement. Since their formation in November 2012, the group has developed a strong following of supporters and has been lauded for its pure tone quality, sensitive musicality and tight ensemble. Sirens has produced five full-length concert programs while maintaining a busy schedule performing at numerous services, events and fundraisers. As well, the ensemble has been presented by the UPEI Recital Series, and will be featured in the 2015 season of the acclaimed Indian River Festival. Sirens is the recent recipient of a grant from the PEI 2014 Sesquicentennial Public Arts Program that was administered by the PEI Council of the Arts for their project “Lost Voices”. This project has been nominated for a 2015 Music PEI Award for “Achievement in Classical or Jazz”.
Members include: Alli Blom, Annette Campbell, Suzanne Campbell, Jennifer Cullen, Andrea Ellis, Jennifer Gillis, Allison Kelly, Kelsea McLean, and Mary-Claire Sanderson.
Admission is $15 for adults, and $10 for seniors and students; tickets will be available for purchase at the door of both venues. Visit sirenschoir.com for more information.
