A Celebration at the Sid

The Celebration Singers perform “Where the Earth Meets the Sky”

With the warmth of spring in the air, the dynamic Celebration Singers and their much loved director Jenn Forsland are busy refining the music for their upcoming spring concert. On Friday May 13 every nook and cranny of the Sid Williams Theatre will fill with the lovely harmonies created by this choir of eighty plus voices. It will be a truly magical night!

Their musical journey will soar to the outer reaches of the universe and back to gently walk on the earth. The choir will amuse with the music of John Williams and delight with a selection of Canadiana: two lovely choral arrangements by Brian Tate and music by Shari Ulrich and David Myles and much more.  As the choir progresses through their program you will notice how deftly they incorporate multiple musical genres from gospel to folk, and chamber music to chants. And to top it all off, they will sing in seven languages.

Joining them will be their masterful accompanist Sean Mooney on piano and talented band members Oscar Robles (percussion), Britt Beauman (bass) and Jeff Drummond (guitar). The choir is also honoured to share the stage with their guest performers the Cantiamo Chamber Ensemble under the direction of Jennifer Riley and Denise Marquette. Their talented youthful voices will add their special magic and polished sound to the show.

Tickets are $17 (adult), $12 (children under 12) available online and at the Sid Williams box office.
