EKOSingers is celebrating the pulse that is there in every song we sing. The BEAT. EKOSingers is renowned for the diversity of its musical selections. They will bring their usual exploration of pop, jazz and spiritual melodies and harmonies, but be ready to “Feel That Beat”!
This May 28th Paula Roberts, director, Charlie Austin, band leader and the EKOSingers bring you the concert that is going to make you feel the beat. With arrangements of pop tunes from the B-52’s to the Pentatonix the beat is there. EKOSingers invokes Stevie Wonder, Carole King, Michael Buble, Neil Diamond and Sting (yup) to find exciting ways to help you feel that beat. EKOSingers will wrap it all up with a reggae tribute!

Join us "uptown" (in Old Strathcona!) for a Sunday of soulful tunes: Bobby McFerrin's "Freedom is a Voice" and "The Garden," "Spiritual" by Sweet Honey in the Rock, well loved jazz standards including "You Can't Take That Away from Me" and "All the Things You Are" together with a few crazy show tunes like "The Madhatter" and "Green Eggs and Ham." As usual we'll have Charlie Austin on keys heading up a nice jazz combo of Edmonton's finest. Directed by Paula Roberts, this urban musical "happening" is one not to be missed.
I’ve often imagined having the chutzpah to walk up to the doorman of a sold-out music venue and say “I’m with the band” and have that velvet covered cordon drawn back with respect. Members of EKOSingers might have that opportunity as we perform with the Millcreek Colliery Band on Sunday, March 6th. Truth is we’ll be arriving early - probably by a side entrance – but we will indeed be “with the band”.
The Mill Creek Colliery Band is a traditional British-style brass band based in Edmonton. The band consists of an enthusiastic group of local professional and amateur musicians dedicated to promoting excellence in brass banding throughout western Canada. British-style brass bands consist of only brass instruments and percussion. (Unlike British-style fish and chips there is no newspaper wrapping). They have a history in the UK going back to the early 1800’s and are often affiliated with industry sponsors – especially miners. In this tradition The Edmonton group has named itself after the collieries (coal mines) that were found along the river valley area in Edmonton in the early days.
The concert date is fast approaching and EKOSingers are having a few extra rehearsals as we acclimatize to the venue and rehearse with the band. This is a new experience for the EKOSingers and we are excited to get it right. Learning lyrics, our harmony parts and getting the right blend are all the pieces that will come together for the performance. The program will include jazz standards performed with the band and spiritual songs that are a staple in the EKOSingers repertoire.
We’re hoping to see lots of the community, our friends and family there. You’ll need to come in through the main entrance and wait in line unless, of course, “you’re with the band”.
EKOSingers will be performing as guests of the Millcreek Colliery band at their Pops and Classics event Sunday March 6, 2016, 3:00 pm. Robertson Wesley United Church, 10209 – 103 St., Edmonton, Alberta.
Tickets are available from EKOSingers, at the door, or in advance through Tix on the Square (Charge by phone 780-420-1757 or online.) Tickets for all concerts are $20 (students/seniors $15). Children 12 and under are free. Special discounts are available for groups (for special rates, please call 780-431-2437).
We are excited to be sharing the stage this spring with The Mill Creek Colliery Brass Band. Mark your calendars , and stay tuned for more information.
