Ensemble Polaris heads out on tour to Alberta and Saskatchewan in early 2017. So before we head off on our Western odyssey, we’d like to present our hometown audience with the show we’ll be taking to the good people of Calgary, Red Deer, Lacombe and Regina!
The tunes for this show are drawn from our CDs – Vikings on Vacation, Uncharted Waters, and a tiny taste of Nutcracker Nouveau. If you love these CDs, you’ll hear many of your favourite tunes this evening; and even if you’ve never heard them, you’ll probably enjoy them too!
At this event we’re hoping to be celebrating the arrival of our latest recorded project, From Iceland to the Moon! This DVD project features short films you’ve heard us accompany over the past couple of years, with our soundtracks by Andrew Downing, Andrea Cera and members of the band. If it’s not back from the manufacturer in time for the concert, you can pre-order a copy of this newest member of the Polaris recording family and we’ll ship it to you!
Thanks to the wonderful presenters who’ve booked us out West, and to the Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council who are supporting us!
“Just occasionally, something joyously bonkers and genuinely creative enough to reaffirm one’s faith in the music industry all over again comes along, and this month, [Uncharted Waters] is The One for me; my latest ‘happy disc….bonkers but brilliant.” The Recorder
“The musicianship is outstanding and the Ensemble plays with joy and wit. Even my children like this one.” CD Universe
