LOOKING FOR A SPECIAL, CREATIVE TOUCH FOR YOUR UPCOMING EVENT?
“The Bruised Years Choir is not to be missed. The performers’ hearts, talents and experience make all the songs feel utterly new.”
–Sarah Stanley, Associate Artistic Director, English Theatre, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre
Workman Arts’ BRUISED YEARS CHOIR was launched in 2015 as a 6-week course, and has since grown to become a season-long initiative with more than 25 engaged Members. The Choir is led by Dora Award winning music/theatre artist Jim LeFrancois (Director, Piano) and musician Rob Joy (Guitar) and is composed of Workman Arts Members. The Choir has a vast repertoire of innovative, re-arranged popular songs, many of which explore themes of madness and hope.
“[T]he most heartfelt choir performance I have ever heard. … Their lived experiences shine through their voices as they sing about loneliness, pain, and community.”
Samantha Summers, Musings
