Elora Festival and Singers

33 Henderson Street
N0B 1S0
 Elora

Tel. (519) 846-0331

 

Travel back to the golden age of swing with the big band sounds of the Spitfire Band at the Gambrel Barn at 8pm. The Festival will feature our own Grammy nominated Elora Festival Singers in 8 performances this year including Israel in Egypt, the moving Passio by Arvo Pärt, the Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein, and a program of romantic works for unaccompanied choir by Strauss and Mahler.

Guest artists this summer include the Madawaska String Quartet with Leslie Kinton, and the award winning Cecilia String Quartet. Other classical highlights include young virtuoso cellist David Eggert, and Bach's Goldberg Variations, performed by one of the new generation of Bach interpreters, David Jalbert.

Legendary performers Michael Burgess (Les Miserables) and Rebecca Caine (Phantom of the Opera) will present the first performance of their Dream Concert, a program of Broadway classics that they will tour across North America. The 1920 silent film classic The Mark of Zorro starring Douglas Fairbanks will be screened with accompaniment by an instrumental ensemble, paired with a delectable offering by Sensational Elora. Two young Canadian award winning stars, Sarah Slean and Matt Dusk, also join us for concerts at the Gambrel Barn!

Taking a break from very busy independent musical careers, our own Local Legends, singer-songwriter Gwen Swick, world-renowned celtic guitarist Tony McManus, and virtuoso guitar player Kevin Breit will spend a night in their home town to perform together at the Gambrel Barn on July 22nd.

For toe tapping rhythms, close harmonies and astonishing vocal techniques, few can outdo the Swingle Singers. On July 30th, this British vocal sensation will take the stage at the Gambrel Barn. For over four decades, this international a cappella phenomenon has defined the art form and thrilled audiences around the globe.
