A Fantasy of Spirituals, Partsongs and Folk Songs

A Choral Feast Starring the Nathaniel Dett Chorale

The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, North America’s only Afrocentric professional chamber choir, enchants you with a program of popular spirituals, including a special tribute to the first AfroCanadian composer, Dr. Nathaniel Dett.

In forming the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, Brainerd Blyden-Taylor’s goal was to build bridges of understanding, appreciation, and acceptance between communities of people, both Afrocentric and other, through the medium of music.

The Perfect Event for Your Sunday Afternoon

SING! in the Summer Presents The Ault Sisters, FreePlay, and Hampton Avenue in a concert of stunning a cappella harmonies. 

These jazz-infused choral groups have all the rhythm & grooves you need for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Tantalize your senses with sing-a-long favourites, while dancing-along in the aisles!

Jazz trio, The Ault Sisters is made up of sisters, Amanda, Alicia, and Alanna and are featured on TV’s “Your All Time Classic Hit Parade” every Friday night. This talented trio of siblings puts their signature seamless harmonies to stunning effect on classic standards and a selection of original tunes.

Freeplay is a duo featuring Dylan Bell & Suba Sankaran. Using nothing but their voices and innovative live-looping techniques, genre-bending FreePlay takes you from the concert halls of Europe, to the jazz clubs of Manhattan, to the temples of India, and back to their native Toronto, Canada… all without leaving your seat. From Bach to Bird to the Beatles, Dylan and Suba effortlessly cross musical boundaries, continually combining and recombining sounds to create a concert of endless variety, with the intimate delivery of two people. Think Simon and Garfunkel crossed with a Bach 2-part invention… 

The award-winning, Hampton Avenue quartet feature Dylan & Suba of Freeplay Duo along with Tom Lillington & Debbie Flemming (est. 1995). They’re known for their tight jazz harmonies and upbeat rhythms. 

Acapella is the high wire act of vocalizing, You’re out there all alone, just you and your voice and a tonne of expectations; you will rekindle old emotions, awaken the sleeping dogs of memory and bring fresh dynamics to songs your audience thought they knew inside out.

That tall order is tough for most acapella crews. For Countermeasure, it’s their specialty, made possible by voices that replicate the sounds of guitar, bass, percussion, trombone and more.
