Pathways is a choral concert programme that features challenging new music by Canadian BIPOC, queer, and women composers. This will be the Atlantic Canada premiere of many of these pieces. Pathways explores themes of joy, justice, liberation, and the journeys we undertake to reach those states of being.
The program includes music by Malaysian-Canadian Tracy Wong, Franco-Ontarian composer Marie-Claire Saindon, Haitian-Canadian composer and conductor Christopher Ducasse, and Canadian composer Nicholas Ryan Kelly. Eastern Horizon will be joined by percussionist Mohammad Sahraei and collaborative pianist Krissy Keech.

Anybody can sing, and it feels good to do it, especially with other people. Singing in a group can reduce stress and pain, improve your mood and musicianship, and build relationships and community.
Spíra is a drop-in, outdoor community choir, active during the summer months on Monday evenings. It is perfectly suited for folks who are looking for a chance to sing, to develop their music skills, and to build community. No auditions, no experience necessary, and you don’t need to know how to read music. Everyone is welcome!
