For Immediate Release: From Skate Canada
OTTAWA, ON: London’s own Amabile Women’s Choir will add a special touch to the medal ceremonies at the upcoming 2013 ISU World Figure Skating Championships®. The group has been selected to sing the national anthem of the gold medallist at each of the four medal ceremonies. Medals will be awarded in the pair, men’s, ice dance and ladies categories.
The group consists of more than 50 female singers who range in age from 12 to adult, all conducted by Brenda Zadorsky. To ensure they have a wide repertoire to cover all potential champions’ national anthems, the choir has been hard at work. They have learned the words and music to a wide range of countries’ anthems in preparation for the event, which runs March 11-17 at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario.
