Seton Cantata Choir – Sing Gently: Music to Soothe the Soul
Seton Cantata Choir, under the direction of Garth MacPhee with accompanist Dean Bradshaw, is very pleased to announce that on Saturday March 27th, 2021 at 3:00 pm ADT we launched our first virtual concert on YouTube. This COVID-19 pandemic has created some unique challenges for performers, but it has also led to our taking greater advantage of technology in order to promote and share our music. The link can be found on the landing page of our website:
For the past several months the choir has been hard at work in our temporary rehearsal space at St. George’s Round Church in Halifax. This lovely church has allowed us to sing together and record while maintaining the appropriate social distancing and masking requirements as set out by Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert Strang.
We are offering a short repertoire that is both inspiring and pleasing to the ear. All are songs of hope, strength, resilience, and the power of love as a force to unite. A few of these selections will be familiar to Seton audiences as we have performed them in past concerts.
Previous to March 2020, we have always been able to perform with the exhilarating presence of a live audience. We invite you to imagine that this is a live performance and ask that you might consider donating the cost of a ticket. Your donations will sustain us! Please visit our website for further concert information and for ways to donate. Feel free to share this announcement with your friends and family.
