Acclaimed Canadian Chamber Choir will Perform in Sackville Feb.8
Feb 04, 2002

SACKVILLE, NB — The Elmer Iseler Singers, a twenty-voice professional chamber choir based in Toronto, will be performing in Sackville on Friday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m., as part of the Performing Arts Series at Mount Allison University.

Founded in 1979, the choir was originally directed by the late Dr. Elmer Iseler, known as the “Dean of Canadian Choral Conductors.” The Singers are now under the direction of Lydia Adams, a renowned Canadian conductor and an alumna of Mount Allison. Originally from Glace Bay, NS, Ms. Adams has received many honours for her work in music, including the Sir Adrian Boult Conducting Award.

The Singers have been described as “the preeminent choir in this country” (Toronto Star) and are hailed for their “tonal elegance” (Toronto Star) and “deeply felt sense of musicianship” (High Fidelity, New York). They tour regularly throughout Canada and the United States, presenting concerts and workshops, and are frequently broadcast on television and radio. The choir has also made a number of award-winning recordings.

With a repertoire that spans 500 years of choral music, the Elmer Iseler Singers are sure to please audiences with their varied and intriguing programming. This concert should banish any February “blues” with its marvellous choral colours!

Tickets for the concert are $25 for adults and $13 for students, and will be available at the door. For further information, phone (506) 364-2662 or e-mail:
