The Aeolians’ spring concert is a musical tribute to the many who are journeying both here and around the globe, and who are faced with rebuilding and finding their place in a new community. Guests and artists new to Nova Scotia will be sharing our stage with accompanist Diana Torbert.
The first of four choral presentations at St. John's in Lunenburg, part of Musique Royale's Choir Feast! Now in its 42nd season, the Aeolian Singers began under the direction of founder Claire Wall as a program of Dartmouth Continuing Education. The Aeolians have competed and won in music festivals, have made recordings, and have performed with Symphony Nova Scotia. They have toured throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, and many parts of Canada. From the beginning, the Aeolians were enthusiastic champions of new music for women’s voices, including commissions in those years supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the CBC like Dennis Farrell’s Vestigia and Alasdair MacLean’s Songs and Sayings, among other pieces.
