P.A. Concert Choir performs 10th show since forming five years ago

Linda Moriarty says the Prince Albert Concert Choir has been filling a musical void in the city for the past five years.

“Lots of the churches who used to have big choirs now don’t, and so this is one of the places for choral people to come together,” said Moriarty, president and founding member of the P.A. Concert Choir.

“We are providing P.A. with a four-part choir, whereas their church used to, and maybe sometimes still does a little bit, but often doesn’t. It’s sad to say but it’s a little bit of a lost (art).”

This weekend the choir is performing its 10th concert since forming in the fall of 2012. The show, titled Moments to Remember, will include the group’s usual combination of classical, spiritual and folk music and show tunes. A saxophone quartet composed of members of the P.A. Concert Band will make a guest appearance.

The choir will sing A Mothers Prayer and the Mendelssohn piece Lift Thine Eyes in honour of Mother’s Day and The Maple Leaf Forever as an early nod to Canada Day.
