Sirens
Named after the singing femmes fatales of Greek mythology, Sirens is an award-winning womenís choral ensemble based out of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Since their formation in November 2012, the group has developed a strong following of supporters and has been lauded for its pure tone quality, sensitive musicality and tight ensemble. Sirens produces two full-length concert programs each season while maintaining a busy schedule performing at a variety of concerts, fundraisers, events and workshops. As recipient of several awards at the local and provincial music festivals, Sirens earned the Richard W. Cooke award at the FCMF National Music Festival, placing first in the Choral Ensemble Class in 2015. That same year, Sirens also received a nomination for Music PEIís award for Achievement in Classical or Jazz.

In past seasons, Sirens has been featured at the renowned Indian River Festival and the UPEI Department of Music Recital Series. The ensemble has also collaborated with singer-songwriter Meaghan Blanchard, soprano Tracy Cantin, pianist Robert Kortgaard, and string quintet The Atlantic String Machine. During the 2016-17 season, Sirens will collaborate with the Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra and the nationally award-winning Halifax Camerata Singers. The ensemble will also endeavour to record its first album of Canadian choral music.

Committed to fostering the development of choral music in Prince Edward Island, Sirens initiated Harmonia Girlsí Choir in fall of 2015 to nurture the next generation of PEIís female choral singers.
