CANADIAN CHAMBER CHOIR COMING TO THE HALL

The Juno-nominated Canadian Chamber Choir is gearing up to visit Canada’s East Coast in March 2020 for a series of concerts and workshops in Parrsboro, Sussex, Fredericton, Florenceville-Bristol and Halifax. The ensemble last visited Nova Scotia in 2016 and New Brunswick in 2014 – but this upcoming tour marks their first-ever visit to the community of Parrsboro; a stop they’ll be making thanks to their current board chair, Beth Peterkin, who has resided in the region since 2016.

“As an active volunteer at The Hall in Parrsboro and also the chair of the Canadian Chamber Choir, I am thrilled to be able to bring these two parts of my life together for an exciting weekend of music,” said Peterkin. “Our homestay hosts will provide a warm welcome to our CCC guests, attendees at the concert will gain a new appreciation of the value of music in their lives, and CCC members will get a glimpse into Parrsboro’s little part of the universe that is so magical.”
The CCC’s 22 singers will arrive in Parrsboro on March 20, where they are set to rehearse at The Hall for two days before performing a concert on March 22, presented by Parrsboro Band Association. Attendees can expect a dynamic range of all-Canadian repertoire featuring emerging and established composers – everyone from folk legend Gordon Lightfoot to CCC composer-in-residence Jeff Enns. The latest addition to the set, however, is a commission from Yellowknife composer Carmen Braden entitled Where Waters Meet. The multi-movement piece explores various Canadian perspectives on water and water security including those of Ojibwe/South Asian poet Yolanda Bonnell, the CCC singers, and Braden herself. Mi’kmaw drummer/singer Aaron Prosper will join the CCC in performance of the work – the first time it will be heard by an audience east of Alberta.

Tickets are now available here

OPEN MIC RETURNS TO THE HALL

The first Open Mic of 2020 was held last night. While the "iffy" weather and some nasty health issues kept some of our regular musicians from travels in to Parrsboro,we had a great audience that kept us all going with laughs, toe tapping and clapping. Thank you to all the musicians and audience and volunteers who keep this "fun" fundraiser going. We will be back in 2 weeks time and hope the weather is cooperative.We will there whether it is storming or not so all roads lead to the hall on Friday, January 24th for some great fun, music and of course we will have door prizes, a 50/50, a canteen and the best variety entertainment in the county.   See you all there.
