CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

A Sirens cabaret evening is back by popular demand.

Crazy in Love will take place on Saturday, Feb. 15, 7 p.m., at The Guild in Charlottetown. 

This event will be a departure from the usual Sirens concert. In keeping with the cabaret feel, there will be folk, pop, jazz, and musical theatre selections sung by soloists, duos and small groups. Singers will be joined by Stephanie Cole at the piano and other special musical guests. 

The ensemble will also perform some surprise tunes for the audience.

To round out the evening, there will be a silent auction with a number of prizes from local businesses and artisans. 

Proceeds from the event will go toward the production of Sirens’ first full-length album “Boundless.” The group recorded the album in December with noted producer Jeff Reilly of Halifax. 

Captured in the beautiful acoustics of the Church of St. Bonaventure Church in Tracadie Cross, the recording is now in post-production and will be released in the first half of 2020. 

“Join the members of this group for a night of music that will be sure to make you laugh, cry, smile and maybe even swoon,” says a release from the group.

This event often sells out, so anyone who plans to treat their sweetheart should be sure to reserve a spot early. Tickets are $30 and are available at sirenschoir.com/concerts or at the door.
