Collaborative artists Jeff Bird and Robert Kingsbury will join Ondine Chorus for an afternoon of musical enchantment, breathtaking harmonies, poetry, and dance, in a processional concert performance in the galleries of Gallery Stratford. Ondine Chorus is a Guelph-based vocal collective guided by Co-Artistic Directors Shannon Kingsbury and Sue Smith. Chorus members include vocalists and recording artists David Beattie, Tricia Brubacher, Tannis Slimmon, and Monique Vischschraper. Inspired by community, interchange, and the power of the collective voice, Ondine Chorus explores the marriage of vocal expression and physical movement through scored pieces and improvisation. Performances are often in site-specific venues and in collaboration with artists across many disciplines including: choreographer Karen Kaeja, dance artist Lynette Segal, Fall on Your Feet Dance Collective, Vol au Vent Aerial Silk Artists, poet Alden Hadwen, and voice artist Andrew McPherson.
