VIOLINIST SOPHIE ARMSTRONG RELEASES CHRISTMAS ALBUM AHEAD OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON
‘Christmas Classics’ presents a stunning compilation of instrumental holiday songs featuring Toronto-based harpist Chantal Dubé
CALGARY (December 3, 2019) – World renowned musical artist Sophie Armstrong has released her latest album, ‘Christmas Classics’, to the delight of fans. Her Christmas album, which officially drops today, includes a collection of traditional holiday music, such as ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and a fusion of several up-tempo songs for fans to enjoy during the holiday season.
Sophie Armstrong, formerly known as Sophie Serafino, has recently returned to the international music scene with the October release of her single, ‘Unvanquished’. She has been charming audiences around the world for close to a decade and has earned a name for herself in the music industry through her lively musical compositions and dynamic performance style. Sophie is now adding a Christmas album to her extensive musical repertoire.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to share my latest Christmas album with fans old and new,” says Armstrong. “Great music is timeless. This album is a collection of music that is close to my heart and I want to share that music with my fans in-time for the holiday season.”
With a love for instrumental Christmas music, Sophie wanted to create a holiday album full of her all-time favourite songs. Sophie began the creative process of producing and recording her Christmas album in both Calgary and Toronto. The album features notable Toronto-based harpist, Chantal Dubé. Dubé has appeared on Drake’s album ‘Views’.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Sophie on creating this album,” says Dubé. ““I’ve never heard the violin performed so smoothly and effortlessly, creating the perfect tone and harmony to compliment the harp. Sophie has an incredible ear for music and this album shows off our ability to collaborate in a way that showcases both of our instruments.”
As part of the official launch of her ‘Christmas Classics’ album, Sophie is embarking on a special holiday tour to perform at several holiday venues throughout Calgary. Fans can expect to see Sophie perform at Market Collective on Dec. 14, the Calgary International Airport on Dec. 18, and the CORE Christmas lighting on Dec. 21.
