About

Led by Artistic Director Andrew Burashko, Art of Time Ensemble transforms the way you experience music. The Ensemble fuses high art and popular culture in concerts 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, with the goal of attracting new and diverse audiences to the performing arts.

Andrew Burashko formed Art of Time Ensemble in 1998 with the support of a small group of like-minded musicians and prominent figures in dance, theatre and other art forms, beginning with one-off concerts to small but enthusiastic audiences.

Today, Art of Time works with the best Canadian artists in the performing arts, film and literature, and noteworthy international musicians.

This includes authors Margaret Atwood and Michael Ondaatje; choreographers Peggy Baker, James Kudelka and David Earle; dancers Rebekah Rimsay, Michael Sean Marye, and Piotr Stanczyk; singers Madeleine Peyroux, Jackie Richardson, Steven Page and Sarah Slean; actors Tom McCamus, R. H. Thomson, Ted Dykstra, Lucy Peacock and Julian Richings; and filmmakers Peter Mettler and Tess Girard.

Music and musicians are at the heart of Art of Time Ensemble; the ranks of our musicians are deep and their talent unmatched. Featured musicians include Branford Marsalis, Gavin Bryars, Jonathan Goldsmith, Rachel Mercer, Benjamin Bowman, Stephen Sitarski, Roman Borys, Steven Dann, Thomas Wiebe, Phil Dwyer, and Rob Piltch.

Events

2015/16 Season

TZIGANE

Oct. 16 – 17, 2015                  Harbourfront Centre Theatre

The fascinating roadmaps of influence are traced in a program that connects lesser known Roma musical traditions to popular styles from across Europe.  Enjoy virtuosic performances of classical works by Ravel, Haydn, Brahms and more, plus a performance of hot jazz by Van Django. Also on the program, a stunning display of Flamenco guitar and dance by the Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company.

Tickets from $25 here.

TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT

Dec. 4 – 5, 2015                     Harbourfront Centre Theatre

Art of Time introduces a new holiday tradition with a characteristic twist.  Top composers will craft classics, favourites, and a few unexpected selections into new arrangements for four singers and Ensemble musicians. You’ll also see Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite, based on the Tchaikovsky ballet, brought to life by a 17-piece big band.

Tickets from $25 here.

ZAPPA

Feb. 19 – 20, 2016                 Harbourfront Centre Theatre

From the psychedelia of the 60’s to the late classical compositions of the 80’s: the music of Frank Zappa defies categorization.  Selections from his decades-long career are presented in arrangements that highlight Zappa’s penchant for complexity and ingenuity, drawing from styles that run the gamut of musical expression.

Tickets from $25 here.

ERWIN SCHULHOFF

Apr. 1 – 2, 2016                      Harbourfront Centre Theatre

A veteran of the First World War and a casualty of the second, Prague-born Erwin Schulhoff was a member of the vanguard of creatives who bore witness to a rapidly changing world.  Before his untimely death, Schulhoff experimented with his musical voice, writing works informed by dance rhythms, absurdist elements of the dada movement, jazz and expressionism. In this portrait concert, Schulhoff’s breadth is on display.

Tickets from $25 here.

HAWKSLEY WORKMAN

May 13 – 14, 2016                  Harbourfront Centre Theatre

A force to be reckoned with in Canada’s music landscape, Hawksley Workman blurs the lines between rock music, cabaret and theatre.  Workman will collaborate with Art of Time to create a Songbook program (our tenth) like none we’ve done before. The multi-instrumentalist and singer will dive into the discography of a musician who inspired Workman on his rise to the top of the Canadian pop music scene; Bruce Cockburn.

Tickets from $25 here.
