PEI Photo Club 36th Annual Print Show
April 18, 2018
The PEI Photo Club will be holding their 36th annual print show at the Gallery @ The Guild from April 18 to 29. Everyone is invited to attend the grand opening on Wednesday, April 18 beginning at 7 pm.
This year’s show has taken a different approach from previous years.
Rather than holding a competition with judges, sponsors and prizes, this show will simply showcase the work of the many talented club members.
“We wanted this year’s show to be more a reflection of who we are as a community of photographers says club president, Paul Vreeland. No winners, no losers. Just an exhibition of what we’re all about.”
There will be four broad categories in the show this year, including landscape, people, nature, and photographer’s choice. The executive of the PEI Photo Club have been working to encourage the greatest possible participation. According to Rick Dunphy, chair of the Photo Show Committee, “We have been helping members select
and edit their best images. We want everyone to be happy about their contributions and to celebrate their accomplishments. I think that’s what this year’s show is really all about.”
Everyone is invited to visit the print show during gallery hours (check www.theguildpei.com for information) and to vote for your favourite photo.
The PEI Photo Club is grateful to all of the volunteers who make this show possible.

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

The Guild Presents: The PWYC Festival — Time Flies
February 24, 2018 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Featuring five diverse but equally hysterical one-act plays, Time Flies is a witty, romantic, absurd, and absolutely unforgettable evening of theatre. It follows last year’s popular production of shorts by David Ives, It’s All In The Timing.
This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun.
“Theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart. Ives is a mordant comic who has put the ‘play’ back in playwright… A wondrous wordmaster.” —Time Magazine
