Music in May: Kaïa Kater & Cantabile Choirs

This week on the Curator, we’re bringing you two interviews from the local and touring music scene.

First up, we’ll have Geoffrey Sirett, Artistic Director of Cantabile Choirs, giving us an inside look at the organization’s upcoming May 25th performance of Considering Matthew Shepard. Lauren and Geoffrey unpack the work that’s gone into this collaborative effort of music and what to look forward to. This piece includes narration, projection and sound design, and a wide variety of musical styles, and is sure to be a celebration and contemplation of diversity, love and loss. Audience members are warned of strong language and intense themes included in the piece.

Up next, acclaimed Canadian roots artist Kaïa Kater stopped by the Curator to chat ahead of her upcoming Kingston gig on May 24th at the Broom Factory. Kaïa is currently embarking on her Strange Medicine tour, fresh off of the album’s release this past Friday, and she and Lauren chat about the new music and touring it. Stay tuned, because we feature the track “The Witch”, featuring Aoife O’Donovan, right here on the Curator.

We have all that, plus your headlines and live music calendar for the week, only on CFRC 101.9fm and on our CFRC podcast feed. Be sure to tune in live on Thursdays at 2pm all summer for the latest and greatest of Kingston’s arts scene. As always, thank you so much for listening.
