Atlantic Blue

Friday, May 10, 2019 | 7:30 pm

We explore songs of the sea—the tragedies, triumphs and power of the ocean and its power over us, including loved ones lost and loves gained. Exploring mostly Canadian repertoire and some fabulous arrangements of folk songs, this program will include music by the Wailin’ Jennies, Kathleen Allan’s Maid on the Shore and Early Spring, as well as Don MacDonald’s Selene’s Boat. The choir will also perform a newly commissioned work premiered this past July at Podium Canada of Ron Hynes’s Atlantic Blue—about the Ocean Ranger disaster—as well as a new arrangement of Rose Vaughan’s haunting Stone and Sand and Sea and Sky by retired Halifax music educator, Lois McVannel.

Tickets: $20 (regular), $10 (students) | available from choir members, at the door, and online through PayPal here:
