Northern Voyage

Adventurer, acclaimed author and Director Emeritus of The Canadian Canoe Museum, James Raffan, hosts a trip through the Arctic Circle via Russia’s Borodin, Norway’s Grieg, Sweden’s Swendsen and Finland’s Sibelius.

The latter will be performed by celebrated American violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn on her famous 1720 Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius.

You’ll also be treated to the world premiere of Canadian composer Christine Donkin’s new work based on the legend of The Flying Canoe (La chasse-galerie). This beautiful new music was commissioned by the PSO and The Canadian Canoe Museum in honour of their partnership and the PSO’s 50th anniversary milestone.
