The St. Albert Singers Guild invites you to experience Africa in a new and unique way as they sing, dance, tell folk tales and welcome drummers from Wajjo onto the Arden Theatre stage.
The sights, songs and stories of Africa are offered to the audience through the eyes of a young child as she walks the savannah in the footsteps of her father.
The two choirs of the St. Albert Singers Guild numbering 75 singers, take the stage on May 19 for two shows only at 2:00 and 7:00 PM.
This energizing and immersive experience is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for the whole family.
Tickets are $20.
Call Verla 780-418-4184 for tickets and more info. email@example.com
