Celebrating Canada and the World in Song
Come celebrate Canada! The Blyth Festival Singers kick off this year’s 1-5-0 celebrations with a rousing and inspirational concert in Seaforth on Sunday, April 2nd.
The program will feature songs to celebrate the 150th birthday of Canada as well as other great international music - from traditional folk songs to modern tunes that are known worldwide. Expect everything from ballads celebrating the unifying influence of the railways to Canadian music written for the movie “Passchendaele”, - an iconic World War I battle that helped defined Canada as a nation. Don’t be surprised to hear lively African rhythms and beautiful Cuban melodies, as well as music in both official languages. The eclectic mix of Canadian and world music, traditional and contemporary will keep you on the edge of your seats - wondering what comes next!
Do expect to hear soloists and groups from the choir highlighted in our celebration of Canada and the world.
The program is family friendly and a wonderful way to celebrate our country’s 1-5-0 with your loved ones!
