Elmer Iseler Singers in concert

February 8, 2017   ·   0 Comments

For all of you who have a love music, here is your chance to enjoy Canada’s flagship choir. The Elmer Iseler Singers will be performing at St. John’s United Church in Alliston (across from Shoppers Drug Mart), on Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m.
This 20-voice fully-professional choral ensemble is based in Toronto, and are considered one of the finest choirs in North America.
The choir was founded in 1979 by the late Dr. Elmer Iseler. Now in its 38th season, it is conducted by artistic director Lydia Adams. Lydia was the Artist Recipient of the 2013 Ontario Premieres Award for Excellence in the Arts, and the 2012 winner of the Roy Thompson Hall Award of Recognition from the Toronto Arts Foundation. They have built an enviable reputation through their concerts, broadcasts and recordings, and are regularly featured on CBC Radio 2 and on Classical FM 96.3 Toronto. The Elmer Iseler Singers perform in concert throughout Canada, the United States, and internationally, and they were the recipients of the 2014 National Choral Award. It promises to be an uplifting evening of music, with an eclectic program for all to enjoy.
The reason for so much background on the choir, is because St. John’s wants to make you aware as to how lucky we are to have a choir of this stature performing in our own community. One does not have to battle the traffic, bad weather conditions, incur the cost of gas and parking and all of the travel time to go to Toronto to experience a wonderful evening of choral music. St. John’s United Church will be filled with glorious music in its sanctuary which boasts great acoustics, a grand piano and is renowned for its pipe organ. This fundraiser for the church is the second of a three part concert series, the third concert will feature the a cappella group Cadence, and will be on April 7 (tickets $20). Cadence is Canada’s premiere vocal group based in Toronto and have been wowing audiences for 20 years with all percussive sounds produced vocally (mark your calendars now!).
Tickets for Elmer Iseler Singers are $35 and are available at St. John’s United Church, 56 Victoria St. E, Alliston, Rustic Roots in Jackson Plaza in Beeton, Paper Moon, 47 Victoria St. W, Alliston, Herbert’s Western Wear, 85 Victoria St. W, Alliston.
You can also call John Dodington at 705-718-0545 or Mardi Andrew’s at 416-451-1504                       Tickets available at the door on the evening of the concert (upon availability).
