NORTH DURHAM: Port Perry and Uxbridge concert-goers are in for a real treat. International Male Chorus, Men of Note and locally renowned Celtic performers Claidhmor are presenting joint concerts on May 13th and 14th.
Started by Stouffville residents David Duggan and Douglas Walker in 1999, the Men of Note began as a 17-member chorus that soon grew to over 40 in number. Over the last 23 years, they have entertained appreciative audiences across Ontario, in the Eastern Canadian Provinces, and in a dozen European countries. Highlight concerts include performances in St. Mark’s Basilica, Venice, The Vimy Ridge Memorial in France, St. Gile’s Cathedral, Edinburgh, and pairing up with the World Champion Welsh Male Choir in Wrexham.
Led by Port Perry’s Stewart Bennett, Claidhmor has been thrilling audiences across Ontario for 30 years with its stirring harmonies and Celtic flair. Whether it’s a Tartan Day celebration, a Scottish-Irish Festival, or a Burn's Night celebration, the five singers of Claidhmor are the sound to make the occasion special. Highlight performances have included Roy Thompson Hall, the C.N.E. and the Richmond Hill Performing Arts Centre.
Both groups share the glorious solos of Susan Ryman and have released multiple Cds.
