Soundstreams | A Love Song to Toronto
April 28 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$32.25
A coming together of two iconic Canadian artists – Michael Greyeyes adds his expressive choreography to Claude Vivier’s enigmatic music. Our not-to-be missed event of the season, ‘A Love Song to Toronto’ will be performed on April 28th, 2022 at St. Andrew’s Church, Toronto.
Choreographer, director, and actor Michael Greyeyes creates new dance works, inspired by two pieces of the late Québécois composer Claude Vivier. The choreography based on Vivier’s compositions “Shiraz” and “Cinq chansons pour percussion” will be presented on screen accompanied by a live musical performance, including percussion and piano.
The performance also includes Christopher Mayo’s composition, “Oceano Nox,” inspired by Claude Vivier’s music.
‘A Love Song to Toronto’ is a celebration of Soundstreams’ longtime collaboration with Michael Greyeyes, an enduring investment in Vivier’s legacy presented to the beloved city of Toronto as we recover from the ramifications of a global pandemic.
