$29/$32/$37/$42, facility fee of $4 will apply.
Led by internationally renowned concert pianist Andrew Burashko, Toronto’s Art of Time Ensemble has, for over a decade, redefined the classical music experience. Fusing high art and popular culture in programs that juxtapose the best of each genre, Art of Time entertains as it enlightens, revealing the universal qualities that lie at the heart of all great music.
Steven Page (founder and former lead of the iconic band Barenaked Ladies) joins an ensemble of singers including Andy Maize (Skydiggers), Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) and Craig Northey (The Odds) in a re-imagining of the Beatles’ groundbreaking album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The singers, and Art of Time’s world class orchestra, collaborate for an incredible night of music – with a couple of surprises to round out this historic performance. One part tone poem, one part rock opera, Sgt.Pepper has defined an era for almost half a century- and yet sounds fresh today. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, When I’m Sixty-Four,With a Little Help From My Friends are just a few of Sgt. Pepper’s hits that have become a permanent part of popular culture, earning its designation by Rolling Stone as “the most important rock and roll album ever made.”
