Remaining tickets are available online and/or in person at the Etixnow kiosk in the lobby of Isaac’s Way Restaurant.

Songs of the City

A unique collaboration between United Way, Shivering Songs, and Theatre New Brunswick, Songs of the City will tell the stories of people whose lives have been changed thanks to the community’s ongoing support of United Way.

Songs of the City, which kicks of Shivering Songs’ 2016 program this January 21, will pair each of these impacted individuals with a writer to develop their stories of change. The event will also feature songs composed about these stories, performed by Michael Feuerstack, Keith Hallett, Jessica Rhaye, Andrew Sisk and The Olympic Symphonium.

This event is FREE to the general public with limited seats available. It’s first come, first serve. Doors open at 7pm, with the event kicking off at 7:30pm. A Shivering Songs pass guarantees your entry.
