Mark Holy Day with The Confederation Singers

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – Confederation Centre’s adult choir, the Confederation Singers, present the annual Choral Music on a Holy Day on Good Friday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. at Trinity United Church.

Under the direction of Donald Fraser, the Singers will perform a stirring selection of music of the greatest French composers. The headline work is Louis Vierne’s Solemn Mass, and complimenting this epic piece will be two movements from the Gabriel FauréRequiem. Rounding out the evening will be the Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine, the Ave Verum of Camille Saint-Saens, and the beautiful Panis Angelicus of Québec City composer, Antoine Dessane. The organ accompanist is Frances McBurnie.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
