Launch of Sig­na­tures sin­ga­long series tonight in Char­lot­te­town

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

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.
