Remembering Terezin

Rather short notice I’m afraid but McGill’s Schulich Singers and others have a Holocaust remembrance concert on Monday night (November 4th) at Trinity St. Paul’s at 7.30pm featuring Ittai Shapira’s The Ethics in the original choral version. The same programme will be presented in Ottawa on the 10th and Montreal on the 12th.

Closing out November

shortsThis week we have VOICEBOX’s presentation of Handel’s Rodelinda.  It’s a great cast with Christina Haldane, Charles Sy and Alex Dobson among others.  Also it’s chamber orchestra not piano.  That’s on Sunday at 2.30pm at the Jane Mallett Theatre.  On Thursday the noon concert in the RBA is McGill’s Schulich Singers.  They will present works by Henk Badings, Eric Whitacre, John Corigliano, Dan Forrest, and others.  Not sure that’s my thing but each to his/her own.  That evening at 8pm in the Dancemakers’ Studio at the Distillery it’s Tapestry Briefs: Winter Shorts. This is a show of excerpts from concepts and works in progress.  It’s always interesting and often very funny.  I think the opening show is probably sold out but there are further performances on Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Saturday and Sunday at 4pm (for those brave enough to face the Christmas Market hordes).
