The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The 16-voice choral ensem­ble, Coro Doice, will per­form Sun­dayat St. Peters Cathe­dral in Char­lot­te­town.

The choir will per­form un­der the di­rec­tion of Carl Mathis.

Formed in 2010, this choir, while based in Char­lot­te­town, has mem­bers from ma­jor ur­ban ar­eas and all points in be­tween, all brought to­gether by the love of singing clas­si­cal mu­sic.

Con­sid­er­ing this is Canada’s 150th birth­day, Coro Doice will present mu­sic from the 1860s, mu­sic that would have been in the top 10 for the Fa­thers of Con­fed­er­a­tion.

Some mu­si­cal high­lights con­cert­go­ers will en­joy in­clude “In Stiller Nacht’’, “Wie Melo­dien’’ by Bra­hams; “Evening’’; Echoes’’ by Sir An­drew Sul­li­van of Gil­bert and Suli­van fame; “Can­tique de Jean Racine’’ by Faure, a choir favourite; ex­cerpts from Sir An­drew Macphail’s “Wall­pa­per Mu­sic’’ as well as other songs from the late 1800s.

Two other per­for­mances will round out the sea­son – July 23, at Bonshaw Hall’s 150th cel­e­bra­tion and on Sun­day, July 30 at St. George’s Angli­can Church in Mon­tague.

The con­cert be­gins at 7 p.m. and ad­mis­sion is by free-will of­fer­ing.
