Canada Sings, eh?! Part Deux

On May 27th, 2017 the Milton Choristers bring their 48th season to a close with their presentation of Canada Sings Eh?! Part Deux in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. This is the sequel, if you will, to last season’s Canada Sings Eh?! show.

The Milton Choristers are one of Ontario’s longest-running auditioned choral groups. Founded in 1968 by beloved Miltonian Judy Hunter, the group was originally a women’s-only choir named “The Chansonettes.” It was thereafter expanded to include men, and renamed the Milton Choristers.

This concert will bring the choir full-circle; Judy Hunter will step in to perform with the group as they present A Dream, written in 1979 by Judy’s sister, Rebecca Windhager.

Guest performances for this concert include Judy Hunter, Flautist Susan Edmonds, Soprano Rosemary Ganton, and the indigenous group Mino Ode Kwewak N’gamowak (Goodhearted Women Singers), who will celebrate life through traditional song and drum circle.

Enjoy a wonderful collection of Canadian pop and folk music in English and French, including music from Joni Mitchell, Stan Rogers, Bruce Cockburn, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, and more.

 

The concert starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday May 27th, at Knox Presbyterian Church, 170 Main Street East, Milton. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling 905-875-1730.
