Isabel Bader Theatre, Charles Street West, Toronto, ON, Canada

Echo Chamber Toronto is a performance series that intertwines contemporary dance with live chamber music. This concert explores the relationship of music and poetry with a program featuring Vaughan Williams’ evocative The Lark Ascending and Schönberg’s exquisite masterpiece Verklärte Nacht. The poetry on which these works are based have prevalent elements of movement, lending themselves beautifully to dance.
