Due to popular demand, Sirens sell-out cabaret is back! The second edition of “Songs of Sirens” will take place on Friday, March 16, 8:00pm 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 fantastic 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 – Sirens is thrilled to represent Prince Edward Island at this national event! Named after the singing femmes fatales of Greek mythology, Sirens is an award-winning women’s choral ensemble based out of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Under the artistic direction of Kelsea McLean, the group has developed a strong following of supporters and has been lauded for its pure tone quality, sensitive musicality and tight ensemble. Sirens produces two full-length concert programs each season while maintaining a busy schedule 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. During the 2016-17 concert season, Sirens performed alongside the Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra and the Halifax Camerata Singers. The ensemble has also 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 renowned Indian River Festival (2015, 2016) and the UPEI Department of Music Recital Series (2015). Tickets for “Songs of Sirens” can be purchased through The Guild box office on the corner of Queen and Richmond Streets, over the phone (902-620-3333), or online at http://www.theguildpei.com
