Past Shows

Feb 21-23, 2019, 8:00pm

On the occasion of our 20th Anniversary, we're presenting two full programs of our best and most memorable music performance.

The Songs Program features our best arrangements of popular music performed by a luminary group of vocalists, including Sarah Slean, Hawksley Workman, and Jessica Mitchell. Songs by Charles Trenet, Bruce Cockburn, Queen, Jacques Brel, and many more are presented in arrangements for an ensemble of top Canadian instrumentalists.

The Classical Program includes the innovative Source & Inspiration format in which a Franz Schubert piano trio is paired with songs written and performed by Danny Michel, Sarah Slean, and John Southworth, plus performances of chamber music by Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann and more.
