If you missed Xara’s Tree of Life concert last Saturday, you missed another one-of-a-kind musical experience. It was the choir’s most cohesive show to date, with the theme of growing into womanhood reflected in song, sculpture and spoken word. Sarah Irwin’s lovely towering tree stood centre stage, bathed in an ever-changing rainbow of light. Shauntay Grant’s powerful, poignant poem “From Here” premiered as the heart and soul of the show. And as always, the amazing talent and passion of the young women of Xara was reflected in their joyous sound and exciting, innovative choreography.
Stay tuned for news about the next scheduled concert Sister Songs that will see Xara join forces with girls’ choirs from other parts of Nova Scotia.
