Voice of a Nation

Toronto Concert Orchestra in association with Showplace Performance Centre & Market Hall Performing Arts Centre presents the World Premiere of VOICE OF A NATION, an exciting performance of orchestra, choir and dance.

Featuring works by aboriginal artists: composer Ian Cusson, poet Marilyn Dumont and singer Marion Newman as well the Peterborough Children’s Chorus, the work will celebrate the Canadian experience from a First Nation’s lens within the medium of orchestral song.

The concert will also feature Stravinky’s Pulcinella Suite. Stravinsky originally composed the music for a comedia dell’arte-inspired ballet. First Nations choreographer Aria Evans will re-imagine the story through a truly Canadian lens, re-telling the story of Pulcinella as the shapeshifting trickster Weesageechek.
