Annual General Meeting – May 8, 2017

In addition to the normal agenda for the AGM, two special resolutions will be presented. These resolutions relate to the requirement to transition to the new Society Act, passed November 28, 2016.

The first resolution recognizes the use of the Bylaws revised and passed at our AGM June 12, 2013, which have been adjusted for any required changes under the new act, for transition purposes.

The second resolution relates to a change in our Constitution which was also passed at the AGM June 12, 2013, but cannot be filed at transition and requires a separate resolution.

Please mark your calendars:

Some Enchanted Afternoon

When a talented pianist and a gifted singer meet in the perfect venueto quote Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne, “It’s Magic”.

On Sunday, Robert Kortgaard and Brett Polegato pulled out all the stops to deliver a memorable concert for an audience who clearly had Broadway on their minds. Moving from 20th. century masters such as Sigmund Romberg, Cole Porter and Rogers and Hammerstein through to contemporary hit makers Billy Joel and Stephen Sondheim, Kortgaard and Polegato presented a polished and engaging concert that hit all the right notes.

Beyond Description

chamber1
When violinist Corey Cerovsek, cellist Adrian Brendel and pianist Michelle Mares walked onto the stage at the Pender Harbour Chamber Music Festival Mid Winter Weekend, February 25 and 26, it was a reunion of dear friends who share spectacular talents and passionate souls. Their two concerts, presented on concurrent afternoons, brought many in the audience alternately to tears and to their feet for ovations the like of which few can remember.

Dawn Pemberton “Did it”!

A welcome ray of sunshine arrived in Pender Harbour when Miss Dawn Pemberton swept in to provide a little blues/soul/funk to brighten our winter. She has a voice that starts somewhere around her ankles and rises in a throaty rumble through the top of her being. At times you could feel the room vibrate! Dawn delighted her audience with a selection of her own compositions as well those of legends such as Stevie Wonder. She sings of love – the “maybe” kind of love, the “truly” kind of love and saddest of all – love gone. Probably the most powerful song of the afternoon was one she wrote for her brother who has been “lost” to her family for many years. This lady is a musical powerhouse and an all-round lovely person whom we would be pleased to have grace our stage anytime.

Dawn Pemberton – Sunday, January 15, 2017 2PM

When Dawn Pemberton’s CD, Say Somethin, was released in 2014, critics lined up to call her Canada’s new queen of soul. In 2015, she was part of a talented band with the unique name The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer that won Western Canadian Music Awards in three categories for their release A Real Fine Mess. Thanks to her strong vocal technique and true emotional connection, Dawn’s voice is a perfect fit for the complementary music worlds of R & B, gospel, funk and jazz fusion.

PH Choir Hosts MPES Students

On Friday, Dec. 16, all the students from MPES took part in a shared Christmas music event at the School of Music. The Pender Harbour Choir sang for the students, and the K/1 and Gr. 1/2 classes presented their charming seasonal songs, complete with props and actions.

A vocal trio, accompanied by Nancy Mackay and directed by Nancy Enns sang a beautiful Christmas anthem. Piano students of Joy McLeod performed a song each, and two of their encores became enthusiastic singalongs!

The event was a happy, energetic send-off to the students for their Christmas break and a heart-warming show for the adults too.

cs7Born in rural Appalachia, traditional bluegrass weaves together musical traditions from Celtic folk songs to American blues, folk and country. After almost 20 years together, the Cloverpoint Drifters have established themselves as masters of this musical genre, both in their fine harmonies and in their instrumentals on double bass, guitar, banjo, dobro and mandolin. This is music of the heart.
