The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

The 2014 por­tion of the 2013/2014 Swift Cur­rent Al­lied Arts Coun­cil Stars for Saskatchew­an se­ries kicks off on Feb. 7 when the in­ter­na­tion­ally renown Elmer Iseler Singers take to the stage.

The Elmer Iseler Singers, con­ducted by Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Ly­dia Adams, is a 20voice pro­fes­sional cham­ber choir based in Toronto. Founded by the late Dr. Elmer Iseler in 1979, the Elmer Iseler Singers is one of Canada’s most il­lus­tri­ous pro­fes­sional cho­ral ensem­bles.

The choir has built an en­vi­able in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion through its con­certs, broad­casts and more than 50 record­ings. Known for its unique beauty of sound, the Elmer Iseler Singers bring to life an ex­cit­ing reper­toire that spans 500 years of great cho­ral mu­sic. They are fea­tured at both na­tional and in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­vals.

Their 2013-14 sea­son marks the 35th an­niver­sary of the choir as well as the 60th an­niver­sary of pro­fes­sional cho­ral mu­sic in Canada. Dr. Iseler launched the renowned Fes­ti­val Singers at the Strat­ford Fes­ti­val in July 1954.

Their Swift Cur­rent per­for­mance is one of just eight con­cert dates dur­ing their cur­rent Western Canada 35th an­niver­sary tour, which in­cludes just two dates in Saskatchew­an, a pair of Al­berta con­certs, plus four wor­ships and per­for­mances in the North­west Ter­ri­to­ries.

Be sure to catch The Elmer Iseler Singers on Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sky Cen­tre. An ex­tremely lim­ited num­ber of tick­ets for re­served seat­ing are avail­able.
