The Edison Singers are returning to Niagara-on-the-Lake this weekend for a concert performance to help usher in spring.

The title of the concert at St. Mark’s Anglican Church is “Warm Breath of Spring” and it comes from the late Gordon Lightfoot’s song “Pussy  Willows, Cat-tails,” which was inspired by his upbringing in Orillia.

From traditional pieces like “Shall We Gather at the River” to more recent works from Eriks Esenvalds and  Billy Joel — and Lightfoot’s “Pussy Willows, Cat-Tails” — the choir plans a charming program of traditional folk and spirituals.

The group is led by its internationally acclaimed artistic director and conductor Noel Edison.

The NOTL concert at St. Mark’s, 41 Byron St., is at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.

Tickets are $45 for adults and $25 for students under 18. They are available at theedisonsingers.com.

The choir also plans performances in Toronto and Elora in May.
