After missing performing for over a year, the University of Alberta Madrigal Singers are excited to announce a unique and COVID-19 friendly “Car Choir” event from the safety of our own vehicles. Under director Dr. Timothy Shantz, the Madrigal Singers will be performing together using microphones, hearing each other through the car radios.
The concert will take place on Saturday, March 13 at 11AM, in Parking Lot N at the University of Alberta (closest to the Fine Arts Building and HUB Mall), and the performance will last between 60-75 minutes.
Audience members can get tickets for $25 per car, as well as pre-purchase brunch options, courtesy of Under The High Wheel. Ticket-holders will be able to choose from three brunch options, which will be handed out upon arrival to the event.
Please note, brunch options must be purchased by Tuesday, March 9, 2021. Online ticket sales will also cut-off 2 hours prior to the event, and there will be no opportunity to purchase tickets at the event.
Tickets and brunch can be purchased here: https://subline.ualberta.ca/portals/11

Elk Island Regional Honour Choirs are pleased to announce their spring 50/50 Fundraiser, taking place from February 15 to March 30, 2021. The prize for this 50/50 will be half of ticket sales, to a maximum of $2,500.
The Choirs are operated by the Elk Island Regional Honour Choirs Association and offer three auditioned choirs for students residing in the Strathcona County and surrounding areas. Choristers range in ages from 5 to 19. The choirs exist to enrich the musical experience of gifted amateur singers and are funded in part by membership fees, fundraising, business sponsorships and grants. Choirs practice weekly, with three concerts annually, including the Imagine Concert, which raises funds for a cause important to the choristers. In addition, the Secondary choir tours within Canada and the Junior choir performs at local schools. All of the choirs participate in additional events such as performing at music festivals, the Festival of Trees, at nursing homes, churches, sporting and other public events.
