Award-winning group plays for kids and young at heart

Based in Toronto, this ensemble has been wowing audiences across the country and around the world since 1998.

On Saturday, May 2 at 2 p.m., the Charles Bailey Theatre stage lights will dim, the crowd will go quiet and four harmonious voices will rise up and fill the air.

What comes next may be a classic song by Joni Mitchell or Louis Prima. It may be an old bebop standard or a cheeky arrangement of a 1980s hit. But these are arrangements like you have never heard before — containing all the richness of a full band but performed using only four voices.

This is Cadence. Canada’s premiere vocal group. Based in Toronto, this ensemble has been wowing audiences across the country and around the world since 1998.

Whether performing at sold out jazz clubs or concert halls, at music festivals, for educational outreach or for corporate functions, the members of Cadence bring an infectious energy and uncanny verve to every song they sing.

This particular Cadence show takes children and the young at heart through a 50 minute tour of the last 100 years of music. On stage antics and audience participation are par for the course at any Cadence show, but so too is a mesmerizing display of musical genius. What these boys can do with their voices needs to be heard to be believed.

The band is made up of Carl Berger (baritone,) Ross Lynde (tenor), Lucas Merchand (tenor) and Kurt Sampson (bass and percussion). These fellows have collaborated with Quincy Jones, Gordon Lightfoot, Bobby McFerrin, Sarah McLaughlin, Fred Penner and many more.

Don’t miss the opportunity to expose your children to some of the finest performing artists our country has to offer at a very affordable rate through the newest Teck Children’s Series at the Charles Bailey Theatre.


Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in person or by phone at the Charles Bailey Theatre Box, open Monday-Friday from noon to 4 p.m. Phone 250-368-9669 or visit us at 1501 Cedar Avenue, Trail. Group discounts available for 10 or more.
