The trio Ananta will be playing this Saturday at the Capitol Theatre.

Ananta coming to the Capitol Saturday

Get ready for a cross-section of repertoire including some Wailin’ Jennys, a piece by Eric Whitacre, two Rajaton songs and more.

Ananta, the trio comprised of local singers Noémi Kiss, Kathleen Neudorf and Allison Girvan, are gearing up for their weekend performance at the Capitol Theatre.

With a cross-section of repertoire including some Wailin’ Jennys, a piece by Eric Whitacre, and two Rajaton songs as well as repertoire from Hungary, Ireland, Africa, France and Bulgaria, there is sure to be something for everyone on Saturday night.

The three sopranos and friends admit their rehearsals are split evenly between laughing and singing but claim this helps to build the abdominal muscles and diaphragmatic control required to sustain long phrases.

When asked about the concert title, On Third Thought, the women said, “Well, at first we were going to call it Mouth Music, since it is a genre well represented in the program. On second thought, we suggested that perhaps Confused But Grounded was an good title since it sure made us laugh but, then again, On Third Thought …”

Guest artists for the evening will include two longtime members and now mentors in the Corazón Vocal Ensemble, Graham Lingard and Tyler Isaacs Dejong alongside Selkirk College’s Don Macdonald who has written an original piece for Ananta to sing at this concert. Rounding out the guests will be pianist Christoph Martens.

The show is Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and $20, available by visiting the Capitol Theatre in person, calling the box office at 250-352-6363 or purchasing online at
