SkirtsAfire is proud to present this 5th Annual Women’s Choral Festival in Edmonton in partnership with Bella Voce Choir featuring Maddie Storvold & the Moonlighters.

This celebration of women’s voices features performances by:

Bella Voce
Conducted by Dr. Joy Berg

Bella Voce Concordia is composed of women from the Concert Choir of Concordia University of Edmonton, other Concordia students, and the Concordia Community Chorus, as well as members of the wider community.

 

ChandraTala
Conducted by Laura Hawley
Pianist Margaret King

ChandraTala was founded in September 2019 and is the newest ensemble of the Kokopelli Choirs, under the Artistic Direction of Scott Leithead. An upper voices choir for experienced soprano and alto singers of any gender identity, the choir’s name is Sanskrit and translates as “rhythm of the moon.” Although still in its first season, ChandraTala has already performed with the Canadian Chamber Choir, collaborated with local Edmonton musicians, has premiered two new Canadian works, and has a number of compelling upcoming projects, including works centering the voices of Canadian composers, exciting collaborations, and programming exploring the calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. ChandraTala is delighted to perform as part of the SkirtsAfire festival!

Maddie Storvold & the Moonlighters  

Maddie Storvold & the Moonlighters is a five piece folk-roots cohort of Edmonton natives, delivering original ballads, and rocking instrumentals amidst the common thread of reverence for art, community & performance. Maddie Storvold fronts the band, leading them tenderly powerful vocals, and tying songs together with storytelling and humour. She is backed up by a four piece cacophony of rhythmic bass, tastefully playful percussion, swelling electric guitar and waves of trebled pedal steel.
