The Lyric Theatre Singers Bring Holiday Magic to Your Homes!
The Lyric Theatre Singers make a much anticipated return with their beloved Christmas event, only this time the Holiday cheer will be delivered virtually! Candlelight Christmas From Our Home to Yours, will be available and free to watch on Facebook and YouTube Live, on December 17th, 18th and 19th, 2020.
Bob Bachelor, Artistic Director and recent recipient of the Jean-Pierre-Guindon prize, has concocted another eclectic program for loyal and new audiences alike. This mini concert will be rich with warm, soothing melodies, and memorable moments. 40 Singers from Montreal, Saskatoon and even Nashville, have managed to stay united in song, despite social distancing. They have been hard at work taking part in virtual rehearsals and have also recorded their voices and video footage at home. As tradition would have it, Bob Bachelor and his creative collaborators have used the tricks up their sleeves, to ensure that each segment entertains and delights!
Musical Director Bob Bachelor and his Assistant Martin Kaller, have embraced our new reality and continue on their mission to keep Singers and audiences connected with heartwarming music as they have for so many Holiday Seasons. They have surrounded themselves with trusted creative collaborators from Together from Home, Alessandro Mercurio (Director and Editor) and Rob Denton (Sound Design). Chris Barillaro (Arrangements) and Karen Pearce (Costume Design) are also lending a helping hand. Additional directing, video editing and visual elements are provided by Matt Ayotte, Louise Dorais, Adam Gallay, and Laurie-Anne Jean-Baptiste.
In This Together – 2020-21 Fundraising Campaign
The Lyric Theatre Singers have found creative ways to stay active and connected to each other and their audiences during the pandemic, however the absence of revenue added to the uncertainty of what lies ahead is a major concern. It is hoped that Lyric can count on the generosity of their supporters in order to continue working on engaging musical projects and find itself on a solid financial footing when rehearsals and performances resume. All donations – large or small – will be gratefully accepted. Friends donating $25 or more will receive a tax receipt. Donations are gratefully accepted here.
