Benefit Concert for Star of the North Retreat Centre
‘Starry Night’ featuring Coco Love Alcorn with Pop-Up Choir from Saint Albert Catholic High School
Posted April 5, 2018

Find more info online | E: reception@starofthenorth.ca

Date: May 8th 2018
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: The Arden Theatre, 5 St. Anne St., St. Albert
Cost: General Admission $35 | Note: All proceeds support the ongoing mission of Star of the North Retreat Centre
Tickets: Call Star at 780.459.5511
About: Coco Love Alcorn has always followed her spirit, but never so literally as with her latest album, Wonderland. The songs spring from her personal journey, but true to her nature, Coco offers a universal interpretation that invites all listeners to jump in and sing along. Her career has spanned over 20 years, 10 albums, cross-Canada tours, collaborations, festival appearances, award nominations and notable success in TV and film licensing - creating this album has been a journey. “I have explored across many genres, collaborations and projects, taking a windy path to get to here. But I have loved every step of my journey and trusted my inner curiosity to take me where it wanted to go. I always thought my end game was to invent a new genre or create a brand-new sound, to somehow mash it all elegantly together. It wasn’t till I took a step back and a break from touring that a new idea came. After all those years of thinking I was chasing down a sound it turns out I was searching for the right feeling. That feeling is connection; connection with the listener, the moment, the music and the spirit.”
Reviews: “Coco is the ultimate musical spark plug... an electrical connector through which the creative energy flows. In my 30 years of touring around the world, I have never seen another performer able to bring people together like Coco does.” - James Keelaghan, Artist Director, Summerfolk and renowned Canadian singer/ songwriter | “Coco Love Alcorn should be celebrated as a Canadian treasure!” -Tony King, Host of Alberta Morning on CKUA | “Vocal power and impressive improv skills” - Jen Hoyer, See Magazine | "When I'm looking with my heart, beautiful is all I see." Coco Love Alcorn, lyrics from Wonderland. #spiritsessions
