Type of event:
Fireweed Children's Chorus and Yellowknife Youth Choir are proud to host Shumayela from Edmonton in concert on Tuesday April 25 starting at 7 PM at Calvary Community Church. Tickets are $20 and $15 (seniors/students) and are available at the door.
Celebrating its tenth season in 2015-2016, Shumayela, a choir for treble and changing voices, continues to expand its horizons, develop its membership and satisfy a variety of musical tastes. The choir has toured throughout British Columbia and Alberta, performed in Ottawa at the Unisong festival for Canada Day, and in July 2013 the group was featured at the prestigious international Festival 500 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Wherever the choir travels, we spread the joy of music-making and hope to bring communities together through song.
Singing in upwards of four parts, Shumayela not only participates in nearly all of the Kokopelli’s major season concerts, the choir also performs in the community, tours, and collaborates with other arts organizations in Edmonton. Shumayela is directed by Kimberley Denis, an experienced choral conductor with a special interest in working with young and developing voice. As with all our ensembles, Shumayela provides a secure and accepting social environment where all singers feel their importance as members of the group. Most importantly, Shumayela has fun and creates energetic and engaging music!
