Spooky Music For Halloween

Join us for a special Halloween themed concert filled with music of the supernatural and occult at A Dark And Scary Night. There are two performances of this concert; Friday, October 26, and Saturday, October 27, at 7:30 pm in Sagebrush Theatre.

The festival of Halloween has ancient roots and was an occasion when, among other things, people believed that the boundaries separating the living and the dead became unclear, when the unsettled dead might appear briefly in our world again—and quite possibly cause trouble.  That possibility frightens us deeply, so, in a way, Halloween has become a celebration of all those things that “scare” us: the ghostly, the violent, the demonic, as well as those less tangible, often unnameable fears that reside within.  That is what A Dark And Scary Night celebrates too—music, both traditional and contemporary, that skillfully evokes some of those many shades of our fears.

Rich Harmonies and Ground-breaking Spontaneity

Our final concert of the 2017/18 season is taking place this Saturday, May 5 at 7:30 pm in Sagebrush Theatre. Russian Innovators presents the strong lyricism, rich harmonies, and striking individuality of Shostakovich and Borodin, two of Russia’s most inventive composers, plus the ground-breaking spontaneity and masterful French-style orchestration of Canada’s Pierre Mercure.

Joining the KSO is piano soloist Sheng Cai, who will be performing Shostakovich’s uncharacteristically cheerful Piano Concerto #2. Since his debut with the Toronto Symphony at just fifteen years old, Continue reading Rich Harmonies and Ground-breaking Spontaneity

Cabaret, Social History, and Glorious Music

What happens when a poet, an author, a composer, his lover, and a book-loving stripper all move into the same house in quiet, wartime Brooklyn? Arguments, indulgence, infestation, questionable relationships of every description, a murder mystery, plenty of reasons for the neighbours to bang on the walls and, just possibly, some truly wonderful art. Join singers Patricia O’Callaghan and Bryce Kulak, Continue reading Cabaret, Social History, and Glorious Music
