Under the artistic direction of Phoebe Voigts, the Saskatoon Children’s Choir has developed an international reputation for artistic excellence, creative performances and for their commitment to humanitarian initiatives. They hold the conviction that music crosses all cultures and borders, and that all young people can be a voice for peace, equality and global understanding. Recording credits include four compact discs, a DVD, and performances on national and international radio and television broadcasts. They are accompanied by the SCC principal accompanist, Michelle Aalders.
A great tradition since the Festival’s inception, the Indian River Festival Chorus comes together each spring to prepare for a featured performance. From Montague to O’Leary, our singers come from across the province and are brought together by a love of choral singing. Ensemble members are active within the Island’s choral community, performing with groups such as the Summerside Community Choir, The Amabilè Singers, the Confederation Singers, Forte Men’s Choir, A Joyful Sound, and more.
This summer, the Indian River Festival and Sirens Choral Association Inc. are pleased to work in partnership to present the 2019 edition of the Indian River Festival Chorus. Sirens Choral Association Inc., mandated to provide accessible programs to singers from across the Island, as well as create a network of choral singers, is excited for this new partnership. In working with the Indian River Festival, singers will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform in a world class venue, and share the stage with renowned choirs from across the country.
This year, the ensemble is under the leadership of director Kelsea McLean (Artistic Director of Sirens/Harmonia Girls’ Choir), and pianist Andrea Ellis.
