EKOSingers sang to a full house at the Westbury Theatre last weekend. A large helping of Brazilian --- that is, Brasil '66, a mixture of warm weather classics from entertainers like SInatra, Three Dog Night, Lionel Richie and Barry Manilow, along with an assortment of smooth African and jazz infused samba, made it a show to remember. Peze Cafe, a captivating Haitian creole folksong might have been the surprise audience favorite (and it was ours too).
Saturday May 25, 8pm & Sunday May 26, 2pm
Directed by Paula Roberts, with guest host: Donovan Workun. With a little help from jazz master Charlie Austin and a hot quartet of musicians, you'll be dancin' in your seats!
Let EKOSingers transport you to a celebration of flavorful music reminiscent of the famous Copacabana nightclub. You're guaranteed a large helping of Brazilian --- that is, Brasil '66, a mixture of warm weather classics from entertainers like SInatra, Three Dog Night, Lionel Richie and Barry Manilow, along with an assortment of smooth African and jazz infused samba.
EKOSingers is an active, 35 voice adult choir who loves to share the joy of choral music that moves, grooves and soothes... They will soon travel to St. John’s Newfoundland to participate in this year's Festival 500, an internationally renowned choral festival. The group has performed in Cuba, in Vancouver for “Vancouver Sings”, and has twice represented Canada at Middfest International in Ohio, USA.
Once again EKOSingers enjoyed putting on a wonderful holiday performance together with the Little Dickens children's choir to an enthusiastic audience at Ellerslie Baptist Church. Admission was by donation, and additional generous contributions of attendees helped the Little Dickens meet their ambitious Turkey drive fundraising goals.
Join us for an afternoon that’s “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” and filled with your favourite holiday tunes!
