"On this, the most easterly point in North America, where rugged coastlines meet our bountiful ocean, Edge Island Festival will stir your souls and give you a reason to celebrate this place we call home."
Newfoundland and Labrador choral artists have joined to present a "festival with a twist". Lady Cove Women's Choir, Newman Sound Men's Choir, Shallaway-Newfoundland and Labrador Youth in Chorus, and Innismara Vocal Ensemble have fused their talents to create Edge Island Festival of Choirs & Composers.The innovation on traditional choral traditions will highlight composers and choirs by demonstrating their true value to the communities in which we live.
The March 17-22 festival agenda is robust and characterized by a series of workshops with children and composition students at Memorial University, a pub night at The Crow's Nest on March 19th, and exciting community conducting at public locations in the St. John's area. The event concludes with a gala concert on March 22 at Cochrane Street Church.
This project is being made possible by the generous assistance of hte Province's new Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music.
Tickets for the March 22 Concert are available at Holy Heart Theatre Box Office.
Ticket prices are $24 + $2 surcharge general and $20 + $2 surcharge for students and seniors.
