June 3, 7:30 pm at Matsqui Auditorium, Abbotsford.
For over 3 decades the Sweeney Singers have been entertaining a loyal audience with their fine choral music. Their primary goal has been to promote excellence in music and to explore different genres, while also making it accessible to their listeners. The ARTY award-winning group is excited to share music, old and new.
In keeping with the theme, Music Lives On, this concert includes sacred early music, choral jazz and folk music, highlighting Canadian composers and arrangers. Featuring songs from the folk era, the singers present music arranged by Abbotsford’s Larry Nickel by three Canadian icons, Ian Tyson, Gordon Lightfoot, and Rita McNeil.
