What you need to know about this programme:
Originally co-commissioned by the CPO in 2012, Roch Carrier’s timeless classic The Hockey Sweater comes to life in vivid orchestral scope. Abigail Richardson-Schulte’s enchanting music not only sets the stage, but with costumes and choreography — including a hockey game onstage — this beautiful Canadian story is sure to warm even the frostiest heart this winter. This programme also features Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Come an hour early to try an instrument and meet musicians at the Instrument Discovery Zoo. And join the fun by wearing your favourite hockey jersey to the concert!
