Coro Cantabile and Cape Breton Chordsmen Perform At The Savoy
February 26, 2012 : Coro Cantabile and Cape Breton Chordsmen
On Sunday, Feb 1-12 at 7pm, two well-known choruses will combine their talents to present a performance with appeal to people of varied musical preferences.
The title, 'Lets Get Away From It All', has special meaning to both the Cape Breton Chordsmen and Coro Cantabile since each group is planning its own trip in the near future. The men, under the direction of Hal Higgins, will travel to St. John’s, NFLD, to attend the annual Barbershop Harmony convention and concert. Over the years the groups have captured several prestigious awards at the event and are confident to do at least as well this year.
Coro Cantabile, a chorus of twelve woman formed in 2005 under the direction of Jim McNeil. They have performed exclusively on Cape Breton Island at the Savoy Theatre, several churches, the Fortress of Louisbourg, and the Jean Harris Pavilion.
This March, the chorus will travel to Havana, Cuba to join the internationally renowned 'Vocal Zea' for a series of workshops, concerts, and fun and fellowship. Admission is $20 and can be purchased at the box office or from any member of the either chorus.
Time(s): 7:00 PM | Price(s): $20.00. Tickets available at the box office of the Savoy.
