Guelph based Ondine Chorus are releasing their first EP, “Towards a Little Light”. The E.P. features two original compositions and three stunning arrangements of traditional tunes. The CD release party will take place at the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre on Saturday March 29 2014 at 2:30 p.m. (Doors at 2:00 p.m.)
The songs on Towards A Little Light were recorded on December 21 2013, during the ice storm by Lewis Melville with production by Jeff Bird.
“When the December Ice Storm descended upon southwestern Ontario and caused Ondine Chorus to cancel a Stratford concert, the sudden availability of time combined with Lewis Melville’s offer to seize the opportunity to record, instigated the creation of this EP. If you listen closely you may hear the crackle of the fireplace as the seven musicians and singers huddled around microphones on the cold December evening.”
$20 Advance | $25 At the Door
*Seating is Limited* / Advance Tickets available at The Bookshelf
The CD release will feature Ondine Chorus with special guests Jeff Bird, Gary Diggins, Robert Kingsbury, and Alden Hadwen.
