The newest project at Lyrical Lines, The Kaleid festival, enriches, energizes, and inspires community choral artists of all ages and levels of experience. Our Kaleidescope of Voices celebrates community and choral art through workshops and performances in a non-competitive festival environment.
Choristers and educators have the unique opportunity to come together to sing in workshops facilitated by Artistic Director Jennifer Moir, and our guest artists. Each day culminates in an evening performance in which participants perform in a mass choir with acclaimed artists-in-residence for local audiences.
Our artists-in-residence this year are the internationally acclaimed a cappella group, Rajaton. The Finish word "Rajaton" translates as "boundless" – a word that so accurately describes the way this six-voice a cappella ensemble approaches music. Regularly performing around a hundred concerts and workshops each year, Rajaton exposes their audiences to the kind of diversity of repertoire, singing style, and stage presentation that has made them a phenomenon on the world stage
Tickets are available on the Kaleid website below

Where: The Registry Theatre
122 Frederick Street, Kitchener

"Joni NehRita’s music is a breath of fresh air for those who still like their music served with, well...Soul. An accomplished singer/songwriter/musician, she manages to blend the time-honoured qualities of classic soul with a modern sensibility that flirts heavily with jazz and pop. It is this effortless and seamless fusion that gives Joni her distinct sound and makes her feel familiar yet fresh and new." - www.joninehrita.com/about
Choral Lifelines: Sustaining & Strengthening Our Singing Communities
We are pleased to announce our Annual Choral Symposium will take place on Saturday April 25th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Duff's Presbyterian Church in Guelph. We are teaming up with Laurier Center for Music in the Community and Summer Institute of Church Music to present a series of workshops on creating a healthy choir from the outside, in.
We welcome Dr. Gerard Yun and Dr. Rachel Rensink-Hoff to our full day of workshops that focus on a healthy voice, a healthy mind and a healthy ensemble. The day is perfect for building your choral community and can be a great group building experience. We encourage all levels of leadership : conductors, music leaders, music educators, church musicians and community musicians. We also have shaped the day to be equally beneficial for singers. The Symposium serves as an opportunity to build community within your choir and we invite you to bring your whole ensemble together to strengthen social and musical bonds.
The Symposium is just off highway 401 and highway 6S. It is also within walking distance of the Aberfoyle GO Transit station for your convenience. The day ends early enough for you to be able to relax the night away! For more information on the individual sessions check our brochure below or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at 1-800-608-5205 and ask to speak to Rebecca McKay.
