Sat 24 Oct – Sarah Slean and The Art of Time Ensemble

Ok, so I admit it. I bought tickets to the show simply because Sarah Slean was involved. I had no idea who the Art of Time Ensemble was, nor did I care.

Well as I found out last night, the Art of Time Ensemble is an extremely talented classical (6 piece) ensemble.

As we were told last night, the Art of Time Ensemble (AoTE) asked Sarah to join them in this project. The first step in the project was for her to choose 12 of her favorite pop songs. She submitted a list of 12 Canadian written songs. Of course by pop music here, they mean the more classical definition. The songs Sarah chose were by such artists as: Leonard Cohen X2, Lynn Miles, Feist, Hawksley Workman, Sarah Harmer, Ron Sexsmith, etc... Those songs would then be arranged by world renown classical music composers for the Ensemble to play with Sarah.

So how did all this sound when it was done? Way better than I ever would have imagined. It was a fantastic night of incredible music and singing. I'm glad I didn't know what it was going to be or I might not have bought the tickets, but the end result was fantastic!

One beautiful night, and to top it all off it was in our own neighborhood's new cultural centre so it was a very short drive.

We got a number of CDs autographed after the show as well as Sarah and one of the members of AoTE came out to meet the fans.
