St. John's United Church Presents:
The Windham Chamber Singers
The Windham Chamber Singers will be appearing in concert at St. John's United Church in Moncton on Friday, April 21 at 7:30 pm as part of their Atlantic Canada Tour. The Windham Chamber Singers gained international attention in 1996 when they won the Prize of Vienna, the highest award given at the International Youth Music Festival in Vienna, Austria. Since then, they have captured the hearts of audiences everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the White House to small towns throughout the Northeast.
They have appeared in concert with artists including Kenny Rogers, Andy Williams, John Rutter, Josh Groban, Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul and Mary), Sutton Foster, Norm Lewis and numerous times as special guests of the Portland Symphony Orchestra.
Known for diversity, their performances include music spanning hundreds of years and many different cultures. In May, 2016, they were featured at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City in a full concert of sacred a-capella music. In contrast, this past October they joined with tribute band, Master Stroke in a performance that featured the music of the iconic rock band, Queen.
The choir has released four CDs on the Pine Point label and appears on many other compilation recordings as both a featured choir, and as backup singers.
Each year the choir tours the Northeast, presenting concerts and workshops at area schools and churches. This year marks their 12th tour of Canada in the 29 year history of the group. According to the group's conductor, Dr. Richard Nickerson, “Four years ago we performed in Moncton and had such a wonderful time that we couldn't wait for a return visit!”
Tickets are available at the St. John's church office or at the door the evening of the performance. All proceed will benefit the Owen Fraser piano fund.
