Amabile Choirs of London, Canada is excited to present “A Song for our Sisters,” a benefit concert to create positive change for girls in London and around the World. This moving evening of music, presented by girls, about girls, for girls will take place on Sunday November 3, 2013 at The Grand Theatre, London. Curtain time is 7:00 pm.
The evening’s all-female line-up includes the four female Amabile choirs, with a special appearance by Liona Boyd, the “First Lady of Classical Guitar”, accompanied by Michael Savona. The evening will be hosted by three-time Olympic Gold-medalist, speaker and author Marnie McBean.
Concert proceeds from “A Song for our Sisters” will support Plan Canada’s “Because I am a Girl” initiative, educating women in the poorest regions of the world, and Brescia Girls LEAD camp bursary program, providing leadership mentoring to girls from London and Southwestern Ontario.
At rehearsals leading up to the concert, the choirs are adding an unusual element to their music training. Amabile Singers will be “inspired” by four speakers, all unique and amazing women. The speakers range from an impoverished 19 year old Nepali girl to a philanthropic London lawyer. Each will share her own personal “girl” story as part of a program called “A Reason to Sing”.
Both Marnie McBean and Liona Boyd will attend a special pre-concert reception. Marnie will be autographing and selling her book “The Power of More” with a percentage of the profits benefiting Because I am a Girl. Liona’s long-awaited CD (her newest – just released on September 17th) “The Return… To Canada with Love” will also be available.
Tickets for the evening are $50, with a limited number of Reception Access Seats available for $75. Tickets are available through the Grand Theatre at www.GrandTheatre.com or by calling (519) 672-8800.
