Canada in Words and Music:
The many voices and perspectives on the story of Canada.
25 September 2017, 7:30 p.m.
The Atrium at 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Summerhill subway
Drawing on the writings and music of some of our greatest artists, we celebrate the many voices and perspectives on the story of Canada.
With excerpts from No Song No Supper by Steven Storace performed alongside works by a variety of Canadian composers and authors, the evening will be Toronto Masque Theatre’s contribution to the complex national conversation about our country, where we came from and where we might be going.
Larry Beckwith, host
Derek Boyes, actor
Alexina Louie, composer
Alex Pauk, conductor and founder/artistic director of Esprit Orchestra
& members of the Elizabeth McDonald Voice Studio, University of Toronto
What does Larry have to say?
"Little did we know, at the outset of planning for the 150th anniversary of confederation that the celebration itself would become so fraught with fresh and important questions about Canada. There is much to celebrate, for sure, and many truths to confront about our complicated past."
Hosted and sponsored by TMT patrons Walter and Marina Unger, the evening will include snacks, tea, coffee, and a cash bar.
