Historical Harmonies at The Crossing
Date and time
, , ,
Knox Presbyterian Church Sixteen
1150 Dundas Street West
Offered in English.
Parking is limited at this location.
Historical Harmonies is a vocal duet group specializing in acapella historical vocal pieces, which are performed in period costume. The duo consists of a professional archivist who researches the pieces and a trained soprano who oversees accurate musical interpretation. While often found singing material from several time periods, at this event the group will be performing music from the Regency era; that is, songs that would have delighted Jane Austen, George III and many a soldier in the War of 1812.
Now in its ninth season, Historical Harmonies has performed at heritage sites across Ontario, including Fanshawe Pioneer Village, Doon Heritage Village, Westfield Pioneer Village, Schneider Haus, Longwoods Conservation Area, Fort George, Fort Erie, Fort Willow, Backus-Page House, Bradley House, Battlefield House, Backus-Mills Historic Site and Discovery Harbour.
You can catch the duo singing and wandering onsite at The Crossing: Community Heritage Day between 10:45am and 2:45pm, at Knox Sixteen Church in the morning and down in Lions Valley Park in the afternoon.
Parking is limited at this location. Please consider taking public transit.
