Come and I Will Sing You is our Gala Opening Welcome concert that will feature choirs from across Newfoundland and Labrador celebrating our deeply rooted choral and folk music traditions. Hosted by The Ennis Sisters, we will enjoy children, youth, chamber, and community choirs, while welcoming our Podium 2018 on the EDGE: Singing from Sea to Sea to Sea delegates to a jam-packed five-day choral conference and festival. We will also enjoy the music of the Atlantic String Quartet and Duane Andrews. Come share in this celebration and be ready to hear six world premieres of arrangements of NL folk songs. We even have something for you to sing too - so, actually, come and we will all sing.   

It's gonna be a time!

Continuing with a more salty Baltic theme, this concert will also mark the North American debut of Solala, an innovative and entertaining trio of Swedes.

The National Youth Choir is a biennial Choral Canada project that connects the finest of our country's young singers who meet for rehearsals, workshops and a concert tour. This year's NYC ends its cross-Newfoundland tour at Podium 2018 on Canada Day.  Two-time NYC alumna Eleanor McCain, creator of the exciting cross-Canada collection of music True North: The Canadian Songbook, joins the NYC for a cameo performance.

AND after the NYC concert, you can board a bus from the Marine Institute or The Sheraton for Mt. Scio and take in … float… which combines exquisite music, immersive visuals, and virtual engagement to highlight a resource integral to the geography and identity of all of Canada: water. Five outstanding Canadian choirs take you on a journey that combines stunning performances of new works by celebrated composers with a meditation on nature unlike anything you’ve experienced. During the final massed piece, the audience will be given the opportunity to transform their mobile devices into an instrument and become a part of the performance. Join us on Canada Day to celebrate our nation’s rich heritage as we witness the land, the water, and their choral connections come to life.
