Join us on Monday 3 September for the world premiere of a newly commissioned arrangement of Roch Carrier’s beloved children’s story, The Hockey Sweater. Storytellers features violinist Min-Jeong Koh, narrator Jonathan Love, and Honens’ Artistic Director Jon Kimura Parker, piano, in a dazzling new version by Abigail Richardson-Schulte.

PROARTS PRESENTS CLASSICAL FLUTE / PIANO DUO
September 5, 2018

Impasto Duo is named after the impasto painting technique, a style applying rich texture, variety, and colour to the canvas.

About the program: Censored!

Forced into hiding, fleeing the continent, their loved ones lost, their lives cut short, the persecuted composers of World War II still produced music of incredible beauty and emotional force. Featuring four such composers—Erwin Schulhoff, Rosy Wertheim, Mieczyslaw Weinberg and Bohuslav Martinu—this concert shows the power of the human spirit in the context of wartime anti-Semitism.

THE CIRCLE
September 8, 2018

Welcome to Circle – The Traveling Food, Beer & Music Carnival presented by BassBus, Village Brewery & YYCFoodTrucks.

Three curated stages of music and dance from the DJ next door to international touring acts, presented by BassBus. We select a perfect middle ground on all fronts for Circle’s musical backdrop: styles progress from upbeat funk and catchy folk during the daytime, to an all out fire-infused, brightly coloured party when the sun goes down. Expect soulful melodies, big funky basslines, and dancefloors full of smiling faces.

Three bars by Village Brewery, with a site wide liquor license to keep everyone milling happily about our entire transformed festival grounds. Sip on the Village Brew classics you know and love or knock back a highball before you cruise to whatever festival silliness you fancy. Local food by YYCFoodTrucks, from BBQ to gelato to perogies – every palate and craving you may or may not have can be satisfied from noon to night, so don’t worry about packing a lunch.

Activities include: The Fast ‘n’ The Furriest Wiener Dog Race, a carnival market featuring local artisan vendors, circus performers, a kids stage, Circus School for kids, Lego Land, Ball Pit for kids & adults, and a Crystal Yoga Lounge.
