COCO LOVE ALCORN – Choral Workshop
Dec 8 @ 2:00 pm
Soul-inspired singer-songwriter Coco Love Alcorn is one of the most charismatic, compelling and genuine performers you will experience. When she performs, a kind of magic happens.

**This concert at King’s Theatre will include an extraordinary opportunity for local singers to experience a workshop with Coco in the day, and then sing with her as part of her Mainstage show that night.  WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE AT 2:00PM AT KING’S THEATRE.

Contact the Box Office at 902-532-7704 to register.
Coco Love Alcorn has always followed her spirit, but never so literally as with her latest album, Wonderland. The songs spring from her personal journey, but true to her nature, Coco offers a universal interpretation that invites all listeners to jump in and sing along.During a 5 year break from heavy touring to raise her daughter Ellie, Coco began working on a new album. She wanted to explore songwriting from a new perspective. Coco was curious to see what would happen if she put down her guitar and wrote with just her voice. She began a journey of layering vocals and rhythms on a 5 track looper. In the fall of 2014 she released a video of herself performing one of these first looper layered songs, ‘The River’.

Everything I’ve ever done has led me to here. To Wonderland, a collection of songs that are an invitation to connect, an invitation to sing, and an invitation to myself to dig deeper than ever before.”  ~ Coco Love Alcorn

“Coco is the ultimate musical spark plug… an electrical connector through which the creative energy flows. In my 30 years of touring around the world, I have never seen another performer able to bring people together like Coco does.” – James Keelaghan – Artist Director, Summerfolk and renowned Canadian singer/ songwriter

She wanted to explore songwriting from a new perspective. Coco was curious to see what would happen if she put down her guitar and wrote with just her voice. She began a journey of layering vocals and rhythms on a 5 track looper. In the fall of 2014 she released a video of herself performing one of these first looper layered songs, ‘The River’.Something amazing and unexpected happened, the video started to spread across the internet and into the world of community choirs. These choirs started to learn Coco’s looper arrangement and perform The River in their own concerts. Coco has always loved group singing and encouraging anyone who wants to sing to do so, but this grassroots spread of ‘The River’ was a complete surprise. To date there are about 20 choirs singing ‘The River’ across Canada, the States and even in the UK.As this was happening, Coco was continuing to write and record the songs for this album. She also continued sharing songs online, performing them live and in turn let the listeners shape what this album became. As her new music was inspiring choirs to sing her songs, these choirs in turn were inspiring Coco. And as Coco traveled across Canada performing between recording and home time, these new songs became infused with the spirit of connection. Without choirs grabbing a hold of The River, and fans already connecting so deeply with her new material, this would have been a completely different album.Just like her career – which has spanned over 20 years, 10 albums, cross-canada tours, collaborations, festival appearances, award nominations and notable success in TV and film licensing – creating this album has been a journey. And it took someone with a spirit like Coco’s to navigate this path.”Throughout my career I have explored across many genres, collaborations and projects, taking a windy path to get to here. But I have loved every step of my journey and trusted my inner curiosity to take me where it wanted to go. I always thought my end game was to invent a new genre or create a brand new sound, to somehow mash it all elegantly together.Everything I’ve ever done has led me to here. To Wonderland, a collection of songs that are an invitation to connect, an invitation to sing, and an invitation to myself to dig deeper than ever before.”  ~ Coco Love Alcorn

JOHN GRACIE CHRISTMAS
Dec 15 @ 7:30 pm

We’re pleased to welcome Nova Scotia’s favourite crooner back to King’s to mark the release of his new album, Simply Christmas, 10 years after Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas became a world-wide hit

About this year’s Christmas tour he says: “We’ll be doing pieces that range from swing to traditional songs like Let it Snow and The Christmas Song and White Christmas, as well as religious pieces, such as my favourite, O Holy Night,” Gracie says. “A song I wrote, Cape Breton Christmas Morn, has become a standard at these concerts, so I’ll be singing that. I’ve been known to throw some Tony Bennet in. I’ll ask the audience if they want that and they always agree.”

“Family has always been important to John and he has many stories about growing up in Cape Breton. They inspired him to write his hugely popular song, Cape Breton Christmas Morn,” Gracie’s wife and manager, Andree, says. “He writes about his mom baking pies, his dad singing from his big chair and the warmth of family gatherings. John’s father was dying from cancer when John wrote Cape Breton Christmas Morn, so it is filled with emotion and I think people feel that when they listen to it.”

The evening will also include stories from his childhood in Cape Breton, ranging from Stories of Christmases past from the morning he woke up to find a Fred Flintstone punching bag, or the great story of when his mother thought she bought him a Montreal Canadiens full outfit but made a big mistake.

ROLSTON STRING QUARTET
Jan 27 @ 2:00 pm

“Electrifying…”

“Highly engaging & superb musicianship”

Fresh from their debut at Carnegie Hall, they were just featured on WQXR.
First Prize winner of the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Rolston String Quartet is storming onto the international classical music scene. As the Calgary Herald notes, the ensemble “chimed the most resonantly with the ideals of perfect quartet playing.” Having formed in 2013, they were the only ensemble to be featured on CBC’s 2016 list of hot Canadian classical musicians under 30. The quartet also won First Prize at the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, Third Prize at the inaugural M-Prize Competition, and the Durosoir Prize at the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition. Their Performances have taken them throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe and they currently serve as Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.

 

The Rolston String Quartet – Luri Lee (violin), Hezekiah Leung (viola), Jonathan Lo (cello), and new member as of spring 2018 Emily Kruspe (violin) – was formed in the summer of 2013 at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity’s Chamber Music Residency. They take their name from Canadian violinist Thomas Rolston, founder and long-time director of the Music and Sound Programs at the Banff Centre.

Luri Lee plays a Carlo Tononi violin, generously on loan from Shauna Rolston Shaw. Rolston String Quartet is endorsed by Jargar Strings of Denmark.
