Launch of Signatures singalong series tonight in Charlottetown
The official launch of the Signatures singalong will light up downtown Charlottetown this evening.
Signatures, a free 30-minute multimedia experience, has been entertaining audiences on the Confederation Centre’s sandstone walls since June 25 in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. It will continue nightly until Oct 1.
Friday’s launch will kick off the show’s singalong series featuring Jill Chandler of Playing with Choir, which will take place on select nights throughout the summer.
“We’re looking forward to having a public singalong with the talented Jill Chandler and think this will add yet another element of interaction and public engagement,” says Heidi Zinn of Discover Charlottetown.
“The show has been really well received so far, and the artful approach to commemoration has resonated with visitors and residents.”
A number of iconic Canadian songs currently play in rotation after the main production, and the nightly audiences are invited to join in singing along as the lyrics and a bouncing maple leaf play across the screen.
On select nights, Chandler will use her experience as the director of Playing with Choir to inspire audience members to join in, singing along to some of Canada’s most beloved songs.
She will also be on site at 9:30 p.m. on July 27, Aug. 10 and Aug. 24.
Residents and visitors alike can take in Signatures nightly at the corner of Richmond and Queen streets starting at 9:45 p.m. every night. A countdown clock starts 30 minutes before the show.
