Kingston is home to so many amazing festivals and experiences – especially when the weather starts to heat up! This June be prepared for one of the coolest experiences – Festival of Live Digital Arts (foldA) will be blessing Kingston with an array of programming structured to support artists creating theatre in the digital age. Plenty of insta-worthy events are planned between June 12-15 for Kingston’s art and music lovers.
The headline event, Choir!Choir!Choir!, will be performing in the beautiful concert hall of The Isabel Bader Center for the Performing Arts. Hailing from Toronto, Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (they refer to themselves as “Dabu”) started this concept with weekly drop in singing events in February 2011. Lead by the team, it’s an opportunity to sing your heart out with a crowd of mutual music lovers in one of Kingston’s finest venues. Their song list includes everything from Spice Girls and Mariah Carey to Aretha Franklin and The Beatles – something for everyone! They’ve performed all over, including at Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall and Parliament Hill to name a few. Kingston is lucky to be added to the list!
