Amabile Singers PEI: Sharing Our Song
PEI’s Amabile Singers will launch their 11th season with two guest vocal ensembles, Amici and Arioso. Entitled Sharing our Song, the choral music concert will be held at 3 pm on November 26 at Spring Park United in Charlottetown. The afternoon program will consist of choral selections of the 20th and 1st centuries, including general repertoire, music of hope and peace, and a set of pieces in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. Charlottetown’s Amabile Singers is under the direction of Ruth Ann Read-Clay. The group presents two main concerts annually, singing a variety of repetoire, a capella and accompanied. The choral group also visits care facilities and shared a concert with the Welshmen Band earlier this year. Amici, meaning friends, is an eight member collaborative vocal ensemble, drawn together by a shared love of singing. The group started as a quartet of friends who formed a bubble during the COVID-19 pandemic to sing and socialize. Now an octet, singing quality choral music and socializing together are still equally integral to the group. Arioso is a self-directed, collaborative women’s ensemble that has been together for over 15 years. Arioso is based in Kensington, with members from Kensington, Long River, Summerside and Charlottetown. Several members are teachers, including music teachers. The group often sings to raise funds for local charities.
Admission for this concert is at the door.
