TORONTO, Ontario, October 31, 2018 — Toronto’s fan-favorite, Heritage Singers, are set to thrill music lovers with an exciting program, featuring Caribbean, African, folk, religious, jazz and popular songs when they take to the stage at Lansing United Church, in North York, on Saturday, November 10.
“For this show the Heritage Singers are working on some new numbers, something different from our usual offering,” said Grace Carter-Henry Lyons, founder of the group. “All I can say, without letting the cat out of the bag is, we will also be including a few Christmas songs to set inclined audience members in the festive mood.”
This is the popular, award-winning group’s first major performance this year and, appropriately enough, they will do so at the newly renovated church on 49 Bogert Avenue, in the Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue West area.
The appearance by the Heritage Singers is the first of a four-concert program, between now and next Spring, to mark the dedication of the beautiful new edifice, which also boasts excellent acoustics.
“We, at Lansing United Church, are particularly pleased to have an internationally-known group like the Heritage Singers to lead off the series of dedication concerts,” said Rev. Bryan Ransom, pastor.
Now in its 40th year, the award-winning Heritage Singers have performed on stage in The Netherlands, Mexico, Germany, Taiwan, Venezuela and Jamaica. North American performances have taken the group to New York and major Canadian cities, including Ottawa, Quebec City, and Saskatoon. The performance at the Saskatchewan festival resulted in an appearance on a CBC documentary.
The November 10 show starts at 7 p.m, and tickets, priced at $25 each, can be bought by calling 416-447-0135; 416-759-7319; or from the Lansing United Church at 416-221-1722.
