The Olympic Symphonium share a video recorded live at Shivering Songs.
Choral Voices is the latest single to surface from the new album by Fredericton chamber-folk ensemble The Olympic Symphonium. The video was recorded live during the group’s performance at Shivering Songs, January 20, 2018 at Wilmot United Church in Fredericton.
On the track, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Graeme Walker says there’s “an effort to make sense of being made to feel like there is an air of failure or underachieving, when really there isn’t. Exploring the idea of getting caught in the trap of how we measure success, the speed of the world today, how we miss opportunities to connect, and how the results can be damaging. The importance of effort and communication, and not taking people and relationships for granted. All of these are themes explored with an undercurrent of optimism and hope.”
Beauty In The Tension, the group’s latest album, was released February 9, 2018 via Forward Music Group.
