The Steel City Rovers perform dynamic and expressive music that is a unique composite of traditional Celtic music and North American styles including bluegrass, folk and roots. Their original works touch on issues of love, loss, celebration and heritage and they also breathe life into newly-discovered instrumental melodies from as far back as centuries ago. Their sophisticated arrangements are inviting for the most casual listener but are rewarding for those who are well versed in the nuances of musical complexity. The Rovers stand out for their powerful, emotive vocals and engaging entertainment. They perform on meticulously crafted replicas of historical instruments that rarely appear on today’s musical landscape. This highly active touring band headlines large festival stages, gives intimate concert performances, educates in a variety of workshop and master-class settings and performs internationally with symphonies. They create, collaborate and work hard to further the love and awareness of music.

‘Summer Glee!’ Intensive Studies In Theatre & Music …
This program will be taught by Lesley Andrews - Dream In Progress Voice and Drama
Provides youth, aged seven through seventeen, the opportunity to completely create and present an entire stage production. Sessions culminate in a performance where each participant delivers monologues (Shakespearean and/or contemporary), solo and ensemble songs, scenes from Shakespearean and contemporary periods, a ‘create your own skit’ using masks, and ensemble poetry work.
Students make their own masks from plaster castings of their faces and learn how to create character using their masks and bodies. Archetypal figures are used to teach story telling. Students are encouraged and taught how to use their ideas and performances to communicate convictions and evoke change in our society – how to work as individuals and how to work together as an ensemble. Productions have theme-based elements, and incorporating current events and social issues (the environment, world peace, positive choices, friendship etc.) Participants learn and implement all aspects of theatre leading to the final performance – from promotional work, poster and set design, to acting and singing skills etc. Children are encouraged to work toward personal goals and potential, wherein once ensemble repertoire is learned, children are welcome to add more solo repertoire. Summer Glee produces an entirely ensemble show, where there are no leads – everyone is equal! Performances have taken places at Stratford Festival rehearsal halls, various churches, and local town halls. The Intensive Studies in Theatre Program is now in its twentieth-fifth year, with each year expanding to include more sessions in locations across Ontario to meet the demand.
