Band Details

From the Promoter

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all love to laugh. For centuries, we have revelled in the humour of light-hearted jests and gags as vehicles to express our amusement and joy. But what happens when comedy takes a dark turn – when we use humour to cover up our insecurities and resentment? The Spectrum composers, guest composer Simone Baron, and 2019 New Voices Composer in Residence, Noah Franche-Nolan, contemplate the complexity of comedy.

A dangerously hilarious pre-concert monologue by an emerging Toronto comedian will open the stage for a whimsical ensemble featuring accordionist Simone Baron, the Odin Quartet, and interpretive dance by Alex Pollard.
