The Bear and the Wild Rose

COMING FEBRUARY 2022

New four-part online series

A free, four-part online series exploring themes of Love, Home, Magic, and Resilience. This collaboration between much-loved Canadian musician and humanitarian Tom Jackson and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra aims to uplift communities everywhere through music, storytelling, dance, and visual art. The series premieres four new works by Indigenous composers Cris Derksen, Jessica McMann, Sonny-Ray Day Rider, and J. Alex Young.

Tom Jackson is the artistic guide and storyteller for this series, and contributes eight original songs. A new episode will be released online every Sunday afternoon in February — each episode features the orchestra performing a new work, stories and songs by Jackson, and artwork by Rita Wildschut. The episodes will remain available for viewing online following each premiere.

Registration is not required.
