Amabile National Anthems

Last March, the Amabile Young Women’s Ensemble stunned the skating world with out-of-this-world versions of the national anthems for the Gold medal winners at each of the four medal ceremonies. The reaction was world-wide and instant, with this website and our Facebook pages receiving hundreds of Likes and DMs of gratitude.

The four anthems they sang last March have now been recorded, CRO Canada. As the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are being counted after the games in Sochi, these may bring back some memories and are offered in tribute.

Amabile Young Women’s Ensemble, under the direction of Amabile co-founder Brenda Zadorsky, sing the national anthems of Canada, The Republic of Korea, The Russian Federation and The United States Of America:

Outstanding best describes Midwinter

Chalk another one up for Primus: Amabile Men’s Choir, who hosted their “Midwinter Gala” on Saturday! It was a spectacular evening of beverages, food and song. Invited guests enjoyed exquisite gourmet tapas, an amazing Silent Auction and world-class music, as only the award-winning men’s choir “Primus” can deliver.

A spectacular evening, with special thanks to Eric and Charie Morse, our hosts.
