Join the National Arts Centre Orchestra and special guest Susan Aglukark for a musical journey to Canada’s North. Discover the culture of this unique region through stories, throat singing and drum dancing.
Susan will share the stage with some of the North’s most dynamic artists. Evie Mark, Akinisie Sivuarapik and the terrific duo of Kulavak bring their extraordinary energy and skill to the traditional Inuit art of throat singing, the Dakhká Khwáan Dancers bring stories to life through drumming and dancing, and accordion master Simeonie Keenainak will get your toes tapping.
Be sure to arrive early to explore traditional crafts and Arctic games in a special edition of TUNETOWN before the concert.
Student matinee performances of this show are also currently offered on May 1 and 2.
Presented in collaboration with the friends of the National Arts Centre Orchestra
