One of Canada’s most joyous annual traditions returns to the Sid Williams Theatre on Thursday, Dec. 7, as part of the theatre society’s 2017 – 2018 Blue Circle Series, presented by Acheson Law.
Winter Harp offers a wondrous concert experience that captures the joyful spirit of the season. On stage, Winter Harp’s outstanding musicians and singers, clad in breath-taking medieval attire, perform a collection of music that ranges from familiar carols to Celtic and medieval music. At theatre performances, magical backdrops of cathedral and snow set the stage for golden Celtic and classical harps, drums, temple bells, flutes, violin/fiddle and an assortment of beautiful ancient and rare instruments – including the ethereal-sounding bass psaltery (the only one like it in the world), the organistrum (an early form of the hurdy-gurdy) and the Swedish nyckelharpa.
“We’re thrilled to return in 2017,” says Winter Harp co-founder and musical director, Lori Pappajohn. “Winter Harp concerts both evoke and create beautiful memories. We remember the Christmas trees we decorated, the joy of spending time with loved ones, the anticipation of Christmas morning. At Winter Harp the carols we perform and the stories and poems we read take people into their memories. And they leave the concert with beautiful new memories. We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and new at the concerts.”
