See the lighter side of the Cottonwood Singers

The concert is slated for Sunday, April 28, in the exceptional acoustic environment of St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral.

The Cottonwood Singers have a concert this Sunday at St. Saviour's.

It reads like a name you might find on a beer can, but this is a chamber music event that showcases the lighter side of Nelson’s Cottonwood Singers. The concert is slated for Sunday, April 28, in the exceptional acoustic environment of St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral.

Director Kathleen Neudorf has selected an accessible program, mostly in English and composed or arranged since 1970, that includes everything from Canadian work songs to three fabulous arrangements of familiar children’s rhymes.

“Cottonwood is full of people that like to laugh and I wanted to bring this out a little.” Kathleen adds, “Of course, we still take the music seriously, but the tone is lighter, and we’re having fun”.

Also appearing, the Nelson Saxophone Quartet will make their performance debut with works by Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi, along with a little jazz — and even funk. The line-up includes Rick Lingard on soprano sax, Ian Hartline on alto, Kristen Elder on tenor, and Kiyo Elkuf on baritone.

This Sunday concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at St. Saviour’s (at the corner of Ward and Silica streets). Admission is by donation, but plan to arrive early. Cottonwood’s November performance sold out, with the venue full to overflowing well before the scheduled start time.
