Sirens fundraising concert for national choral conference

Sirens in a live performance setting (photo: Darrell Theriault)The second edition of “Songs of Sirens” will take place on March 16 at 8 pm at The Guild in Charlottetown.

Singers will break out into solos, duos and trios for an evening of songs ranging from musical theatre, to folk, pop and jazz. Singers will be joined by Stephanie Cole at the piano, along with other special musical guests. Ensemble members come together to perform songs from Imogen Heap and Wailin’ Jennys and more. There will also be a silent auction with a number of prizes from local businesses and artisans. 

All proceeds are in support of Sirens programming and educational outreach, including the ensemble’s trip to Podium 2018 in Newfoundland. Podium is Canada’s choral conference and festival and Sirens will represent Prince Edward Island at this national event.

Sirens is a women’s choral ensemble from Charlottetown under the artistic direction of Kelsea McLean. Sirens produces two full-length concert programs each season while performing at a variety of concerts, fundraisers, events and workshops.

A recipient of several awards at the local and provincial music festivals in 2015, Sirens earned the Richard W. Cooke award at the FCMF National Music Festival, placing first in the Choral Ensemble Class. That same year, Sirens also received a nomination for Music PEI’s award for Achievement in Classical or Jazz.

Sirens has performed alongside the Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra and the Halifax Camerata Singers. The ensemble has collaborated with The Atlantic String Machine, singer-songwriter Meaghan Blanchard, soprano Tracy Cantin, pianist Robert Kortgaard, and violinist Sean Kemp. Sirens has been featured at the Indian River Festival and the UPEI Department of Music Recital Series.

Tickets can be purchased through The Guild box office on the corner of Queen and Richmond Streets, at 902-620-3333, or online at www.theguildpei.com.
