Soundstreams | Music of the Rainbow Nation

November 23, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$47.50 – $67.50
A Tribute to Nelson Mandela’s Dream
“The music of my own flesh and blood goes right to my heart.”—NELSON MANDELA
BOOK TICKETS

Purchase single tickets over the phone 416-504-1282 (option 3) or online.

Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s dream and Desmond Tutu’s hope when he named post-apartheid South Africa the “Rainbow Nation,” the evening explores Canadian and South African cultural identity through song and theatre.

We welcome actors Kim Sanssoucie and Batsile Ramasodi from Johannesburg. The pair will offer dramatic recitations of Mandela’s journals and diaries, attesting to the legacy of his dream.

The concert features Juno award-winning vocalist Lorraine Klaasen and her ensemble, The Rainbow Chorus, rising opera-star Justin Hopkins, and a brilliant percussion ensemble led by Ryan Scott.

Experience the world premiere of a choral piece by Canadian composer Gabriel Dharmoo, work by South African composer Kevin Volans, interpretations of songs by Miriam Makeba, and selections from Kurt Weill’s Lost in the Stars.

PRE-CONCERT CHAT – 7:00 PM

Arrive early for a pre-concert chat with Artistic Director Lawrence Cherney and artists.

Watch bass-baritone Justin Hopkins sing “U vrat obiteli svyatoy” (At The Gates of the Holy Cloister) by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
