Sailors and Sirens delight in Nove Voce concert

Prince George's internationally-award winning choir, Nove Voce, presents their concert, Sailors and Sirens, on Sunday, Feb. 11 at the Knox Performance Centre.
Nove Voce presents Sailors and Sirens on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 2 p.m. at Knox Performance Centre in downtown Prince George.

Sailors and Sirens will be Nove Voce’s first concert after their first-place win at The International Choral Kathuamixon.

The showcase will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11 at the Knox Performance Centre.

Enjoy sea shanties, folk songs and great Canadian music with special guests Barb Parker, Allison Bell and the Prince George Tapestry Singers.

Favourites like The Wellerman, I’s the B’y and Northern Lights are some of the many pieces featured. During the performance a new arrangement by former Prince George resident, Allison Girvan, called Un Canadien Errant, will be showcased.

Robin Norman, Nove Voce’s choir director, said they are very excited to have the Prince George Tapestry Singers join them during the concert.

Performing together has been a tradition for the two groups, most recently in 2021 and as far back as 2007. The two groups will become a mass choir during the performance of I’s the B’y and As the Ship went Down by Wood Pidgeon.

The Tapestry Singers will also share their favourites like Bring a Little Water, Sylvie and The Water of Tyne. 

The show goes at Knox Performance Centre, 1448 Fifth Avenue in downtown Prince George, on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 2 p.m.
