Over six continents and in many languages, World Storytelling Day will be celebrated on, or close to, March 20th. SC-CC joins this world-wide oral extravaganza bringing you stories, and tunes, shaped by once upon-a -time but told now; for taking forward into the uncertain time ahead. Five fine Canadian artists will bring you silver keys, the green wood, the beginning of things, a resonant piano, and many other wonders for your delighting.

This concert will feature stories from Jennifer Ferris, Stéphanie Bénéteau, Tom Lips and Mariella Bertelli. Beverley McKiver will be providing musical performances and Kathy Jessup will be hosting. Artistic Direction by Jennifer Cayley.

Ce spectacle sera présenté exclusivement en anglais; toutes nos communications à ce sujet seront donc, elles aussi, en anglais. Mais vous aurez bientôt des nouvelles du spectacle 100 % francophone que nous préparons pour cet été! Pour ne rien manquer, consultez régulièrement notre site Web et notre page Facebook.
