COC’s Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre.

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

12 – 1 p.m.

Rain, Wind, Clouds and Lightning
Ensemble Jeng Yi presents an exciting interactive program of Korean drumming and dance that audiences of all ages will find engaging and educational. Dynamic drum pieces and the much-talked-about ribbon hat dance are interspersed with entertaining information and stories about the traditional instruments and music. Audiences will learn to speak a bit of Korean, including greetings and the names for traditional instruments, and will have the chance to become a “drum choir.” There is also a Q&A following the performance.

 

Thursday, March 13, 2014

12 – 1 p.m.

Opera Interactive
Opera comedienne Kyra Millan and young artists of the COC’s Ensemble Studio lead the audience in a lively interactive concert featuring popular operatic arias, including favourites such as the Flower Duet from Lakmé, excerpts from Mozart’s The Magic Flute and “O mio babbino caro” from Gianni Schicchi. The audience can also test their operatic vocal chops in sing-a-long choruses. Audience members of all ages will enjoy listening to, learning about and trying their hand at the fascinating art of opera.

 

The Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre is a wonderful opportunity to experience diverse artistic programming in what has become one of Toronto’s most exciting cultural hubs.
