Come on out with the whole family for a unique musical experience at Holy Heart Theatre at 7:00pm on Friday March 3, 2023!

The Swinging Belles and CALOS Youth Orchestras have joined forces to put together an exciting, interactive and educational show called The Fantastical Fables of Fawn: A Musical Adventure!

The Fantastical Fables of Fawn is a unique musical experience for all ages. This musical adventure follows the story of Fawn as they leave their small village in an enchanted forest to head out on a quest to find the true meaning of happiness. As Fawn moves through their journey, they draw from the wisdom of the river, the mountains, the trees and others to help them answer the question “What is happiness?”

The show features music educator and NSO oboist extraordinaire, Kathy Conway-Ward. Each segment of Fawn’s quest is orchestrated with musical quotes from famous classical works. You will hear segments from some of the most loved orchestral repertoire including Beethoven’s “Pastoral Symphony”, Respighi’s “Pines of Rome”, Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King” and more!

The Swinging Belles are a swing band from St John’s, NL who focus on creating music for the young and the young at heart. At the core of the Swinging Belles philosophy is the belief that children are brilliant and beautiful beings that respond to and are inspired by music that celebrates their intelligence, their innate musicality and their expansive imagination. They prioritize creating musical experiences that both kids and their families can enjoy together. Their audience spans the decades with fans from 8 months to 80 years and beyond. Many times, The Swinging Belles are the first live musical experience a child experiences and they work hard to create an interactive, high energy show that hopes to inspire these budding creatives to celebrate their individuality and to follow their own passions and interests wherever they may lead.

CALOS Youth Orchestras is an organization with more than forty years of orchestral play for youth from St. John’s and surrounding communities on the Northeast Avalon. Currently, CALOS provides high-quality and accessible orchestra and ensemble experiences for both Junior and Senior players and is the largest and foremost training program for young instrumentalists in the province. Since the mission of CALOS Youth Orchestras is to encourage and develop the musical and social abilities of young people, CALOS believes in the importance of musical and educational outreach events for K-12 schools, the last of which (scheduled for March 2020) was shut down due to the pandemic. Led by Artistic Director Grant Etchegary, CALOS Senior Orchestra is thrilled to return to and work with The Swinging Belles to provide this outreach performance opportunity to schools.
