"Vigil" - Charlottetown
Find solace with Sirens during this season of remembrance. PEIs award-winning choral ensemble, along side Harmonia Girls Choir, will present its first concert program of the 2016-17 concert season this November. Vigil will be performed on Friday, November 18, 7:30pm at Park Royal United Church, Charlottetown and Sunday, November 20, 3:00pm at St. Andrews United Church, Vernon Bridge.
Vigil is an hour-long collection of meditative songs reflecting on themes of remembrance and peace. Beginning in a place of sorrow and loss, the music will eventually move to a place of tranquility and acceptance. Performing repertoire from the contemporary choral canon, including pieces by Leonard Enns, Allan Bevan, Stephen Chatman and Michael McGlynn of Irelands Anuna, the compositional style and close harmonies provide the perfect backdrop for personal reflection. Audience members are invited and encouraged to participate in the performance, whether sharing the name of a loved one, lighting a candle in remembrance, or simply closing their eyes to listen.
Sirens will be joined by Stephanie Cole at the piano. Harmonia Girls' Choir is lead by Artistic Director Kelsea McLean and accompanied by pianist Andrea Ellis.
