Quartette kicks off the holiday season at the Empress

The talented Canadian foursome Quartette is bringing their melodious harmonies to the Empress Theatre for a Christmas performance on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Since their debut in 1993, the four members of Quartette have been both publicly and critically acclaimed for their lush harmonies and diverse repertoire.
Cindy Church, Caitlin Hanford, Gwen Swick and Sylvia Tyson are all seasoned singer-songwriters whose combined influences range from blues and gospel to country and folk to jazz and pop.
In 1994, Quartette won the Canadian Country Music Association’s award for best vocal collaboration for their debut album.
In 1995 and 1996, they garnered Juno Award nominations for top country group.
Twenty-five years later, the foursome is still going strong.
While Quartette continues to tour extensively in Canada, and plays select dates with symphony orchestras, each member has been able to maintain their individual solo careers.
Quartette’s Christmas show delivers a mix of seasonal favourites and newer songs, performed with their signature harmonies, warm humour, and love of music.
Traditional carols like Silent Night and What Child Is This? blend with Quartette originals such as The Perfect Christmas Tree and Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.
Among Quartette’s eight albums are two seasonal recordings, It’s Christmas (1996) and I See a Star (2002).
