Local Singer-songwriters Perform at New City Venue
Local singer-songwriters Tracy Lalonde, Stephanie Coleman and Sara Murphy will perform in the first of a series of local talent showcases at the newly-launched ‘The Church on Sydney”.
The A Night at The Church concert series will offer local musicians and artists an opportunity to perform and showcase their art in a creative, inspiring space to audiences of all ages.
“There is an increasing demand for this type of venue for those looking for a change from the usual club scene,” said coordinator Sara Murphy.
The collaborative workspace at 130 Sydney Street features vaulted ceilings, picturesque stained glass windows and gleaming hardwood floors.
Local entrepreneur and The Church on Sydney founder Brock Frost is excited about the event and hopes to see the arts community make use of the space for creative pursuits such as concerts.
“We would love to see events like this happen in here on a regular basis,” said Frost. “We have this beautiful space here right downtown. It would be great to see people take in a show, dinner, go for a walk down to the park and spend some time downtown in the evening.”
Emerging singer-songwriter Tracy Lalonde has literally blown away audiences with her unique vocal stylings. Already a local favourite, this 23 year-old’s career is quickly on the rise.
Stephanie Coleman has been a regular performer at the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage and was a featured artist on the Spirit of a City Compilation CD. Coleman is getting set to release her debut CD of heartfelt songs about love and life.
Singer-songwriter Sara Murphy has been a regular performer on the Cornwall music scene and is coming off the heels of her 2011 EP ‘Bites’. Murphy has performed at the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage, Liberalpalooza, The Mayor’s Celebration for the Arts and has opened for bands such as The Barstool Prophets and Twilight Hotel..
