Our performances are a unique multi-media experience with both live music and visual presentations using projected images and lyrics and are geared towards the residents of retirement communities, continuing care centres and hospitals.  Audience participation is a major objective of each performance in which “sing-along” is encouraged.

 “A Tour of the British Isles”:   1 hour

 

“A Tour of the British Isles” consists of 12 traditional British folk songs which we play, and sing with a computer based rhythm accompaniment.  Each song is presented with a narration and with sequenced, computer-controlled presentations of photographs, paintings and prints relevant to the lyrics of the song which are also projected on the screen behind us.  The performance is intended to give the audience a sense of what a tour of the four countries of the British Isles would be like and to enable them to join in the singing of the well-known songs. 

“The 1897 Klondike – Edmonton’s Gold Rush”:  1 hour

 

“The 1897Klondike – Edmonton’s Gold Rush” consists of narration and 17 songs from that era with sequenced, computer-controlled presentations of photographs relevant to the song lyrics which are also projected on the screen behind us when we perform. The performance is intended to give the audience an appreciation of the history of the Klondike Gold Rush, Edmonton’s history and role in that episode and to enable them to join in the singing of the well-known “1900’s standard” songs.
