Ticket Giveaway: The Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s ‘New Creations Festival’: Tanya Tagaq (Saturday, March 4, 2017 – 8:00pm)

Inuit throat singer and artist Tanya Tagaq won the Polaris Prize for best Canadian album in 2014, for Animism. Those who thought she had then made her definitive artistic statement are in for a surprise.

Also in for a shock are those who thought international success, playing to major festivals and packed houses all over the world, would lead to a mellower sound, or a more laid back approach.

Tagaq follows up Animism with Retribution, an even more musically aggressive, more aggressively political, more challenging, more spine tingling, more powerful masterpiece.

The Inuit people live on the cutting edge of the climate emergency. As sea ice dwindles at astonishing rates, they are witnessing the death of the entire Arctic ecosystem, as the colonialist machine rolls on, mining newly uncovered areas for diamonds. And the Inuit know the truth about the contemporary natures of the crimes at the center of Canada’s identity. Tagaq herself is a survivor of Canada’s infamous genocidal Residential School System, something most Canadians would rather imagine as a dealt-with thing of the distant past.

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s ‘New Creations Festival’ has snapped up Tanya Tagaq to highlight their ‘New Creations Festival’ with light in these dark winter months.

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s ‘New Creations Festival’ program ranges from an imposing work for piano and orchestra by Jörg Widmann to the World Premières of works by the TSO’s RBC Affiliate Composer Jordan Pal and Tanya Tagaq, written with Christine Duncan and Jean Martin, with orchestrations by Christopher Mayo.

Ticket Giveaway: Toronto’s Vintage Clothing Show & Antiques Market Return to Queen Elizabeth Building at Exhibition Place (Saturday September 30 – Sunday October 1, 2017)

With everything from retro streetwear and vintage Chanel handbags to architectural antiques and Madmen-era advertising posters, there is only one place for the ultimate selection of vintage clothing and classic antiques: the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show and the Toronto Antique & Vintage Market. Taking place Saturday, September 30 from 10am until 5pm and Sunday, October 1 from 10am until 4pm in the Queen Elizabeth Building at Exhibition Place, these two blockbuster shows under one roof will offer a world of rare finds.

“This is going to be another great year at the Show,” said Show Manager, Catherine Knoll. “Our most popular vendors are returning with a treasure trove of items. This includes authentic turn of the century garments from the Fashion History Museum to a full range of classic vintage wedding dresses from Dear Hazel May. And who wouldn’t be excited to see the return of Luxe Touch, home for some of the most exquisite vintage Designer handbags in the world.”

According to Knoll, the popularity of vintage clothing continues to grow and is not limited to one age group. “Vintage clothing shoppers love anything from the older eras right through to the 1980’s.” It also helps that the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show has a vast selection of clothing, accessories and jewelry at all price points.”

The antique market has its own unique appeal. “The Toronto Antique & Vintage Market attracts people who are looking for great decorator finds. More and more, I see modern décor that utilizes a single antique piece as the focal point for the room,” adds Knoll. “Shoppers looking for these types of pieces can save a lot of time as the participating vendors have sifted through mountains of antiques in order to source their stock.”

Toronto Vintage Clothing Show
As Canada’s largest sale of vintage clothing, avid collectors and casual browsers will find plenty to like. The show’s boutique-style booths allow for easy browsing and conversation with the vendors, and with thousands of vintage garments to choose from, it’s easy to spend the entire day trying things on. Whether it’s a sultry Kitten Skirt like Marilyn’s or a flirty little Bolero jacket like Audrey’s, if it was made between 1920 and 1990 – it will likely be on the show floor.

Toronto Antique & Vintage Market
Toronto’s urban vintage marketplace is filled with amazing antique, vintage and retro finds! The event features everything from laid back country furniture to bohemian-style décor – sure to make decorators hearts beat just a little bit faster! Country quilts, Manhattan glass, sixties era kitchen-ware, Atlantic folk art, 20thcentury lamps, silver accents, crazy kitsch, architectural antiques and classic designer jewellery are some other featured items.

Thank you to the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show – I have two pairs of tickets to giveaway.  Email me before September 27, 2017 and let me know what you want to buy at the show this year.  You will then have a chance to grab a pair of tickets!  Good luck!

Toronto Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven & Tchaikovsky Ticket Giveaway

CONCERT PROGRAM

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, K. 492

Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35

  1. Allegro moderato
  2. Canzonetta: Andante

III. Finale: Allegro vivacissimo

Esther Yoo, violin

Intermission

Ludwig van Beethoven

Symphony No. 4 in B-flat Major, Op. 60

  1. Adagio – Allegro vivace
  2. Adagio

III. Allegro vivace

  1. Allegro ma non troppo

Peter Oundjian conductor says, ‘Two brilliant young musicians make their Canadian débuts with us in this concert of music by the masters. Karina Canellakis begins the concert with Mozart’s zesty Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, one of his wittiest and most engaging works. This is truly Mozart at his finest—ebullient, tuneful, energetic, and full of surprises. Esther Yoo then joins the Orchestra for Tchaikovsky’s great Violin Concerto, one of the most famous works in the repertoire. Tchaikovsky’s success with audiences probably comes from his endlessly inventive melodic gift, his ability to spin out memorable melodies effortlessly. The Violin Concerto is also a true showpiece for the soloist. Considered unplayable when it was written, it’s now a cornerstone of the concerto repertoire. Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony, on the other hand, is less well known to audiences than the two mighty giants on either side of it, the Third and Fifth Symphonies. But many musicians consider it to be one of the composer’s most masterful works—it’s hugely attractive, with some of Beethoven’s best melodies and a truly dazzling finale.’
