Arts & Entertainment

The Carillon Singers are joining their voices with that of singer-wongwriter Maurice Poirier for a concert on June 9.

It will be an evening of Celtic inspired music, featuring folk favourites both old and new. Set in the picturesque sanctuary of St. Columba United Church, Hopewell, the program will showcase arrangements by Eleanor Daley, Nancy Telfer, Dianne Loomer and Allister MacGillivray. Enjoy familiar favourites and little-known gems sung in creative styles from the fresh and fun, to stark and moving.

Poirier will bring his soulful guitar and voice to a set that includes some of his own original music. Pictou County fiddler, Heather Cameron, will add lift and movement to the voices of Maurice and the Carillons in collaboration.


The Carillon Singers have been performing for more than 20 years across Nova Scotia and beyond. Pictou County’s premier vocal ensemble, the “Carillons” are an all-female group of professional and amateur musicians directed by Vivi Chediac and accompanied by pianist Karen Crowley.

Beginning at 7 p.m. on June 9, the concert will be followed by a reception of treats and refreshments.

Tickets for Dames with Strings Attached are $15 or $12 for seniors and students, and are available in advance  by calling 902-771-0250.
