The Aeolian Singers open their 2019-20 season for the third year under artistic leadership of Heather Fraser, reflecting on the season and their camaraderie and love of singing with In Good Company. The women’s choir will present a pair of these In Good Company concerts in November, and also take a singing road trip to Wolfville next March, closing Dartmouth Community Concerts season in the spring in an eclectic season of great music for women’s voices (Veritas).
The season opens with concerts (In Good Company) in Dartmouth (Grace United) and Upper Tantallon (St. Luke’s United) presenting music ranging from Henry VIII to Jane Siberry. The program takes in the world of the Renaissance and Baroque, moving to modern takes on ancient texts, with glorious choral writing by contemporary Canadian female composers like Kelly Marie Murphy, Marie Claire Saindon and Laura Hawley. They’ll even throw in a pub song of two. The concerts take place on Saturday, November 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Grace United Church, Dartmouth and on Sunday, November 24 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Luke’s United Church, Upper Tantallon.
Tickets are available for the Aeolians’ concerts from choir members and at the door. You can also purchase them online from the choir’s website. All tickets are $20 regular and $10 for students.
