Broadwayworld.com gives us the low-down on the event:
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is delighted to welcome Canadian multi-platinum, Grammy- and JUNO-nominated singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for a single, not-to-be-missed performance of her music accompanied by the TSO at Roy Thomson Hall on Saturday, June 17 at 7:30pm. Tickets go on sale today.
As the TSO continues to celebrate Canadian music and its many genres, the much-anticipated performance is part of the TSO’s Canada Mosaic-a Canada 150 Signature Project. Jepsen-a singer, songwriter, and actress-shares the stage with long-time collaborator Tavish Crowe (Musical Director and guitarist) and the TSO, under the musical direction of Canadian conductor Lucas Waldin. To the delight of Jepsen’s fans and TSO buffs alike, the evening includes some of the artist’s greatest hits including excerpts from her critically acclaimed album E•MO•TION.
“Canada Mosaic celebrates our musical diversity and Canadian artists. Its lineup features some amazing collaborations, including one with singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen. Make the most of Canada 150 and let yourself be captivated by Canadian music!” -The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage
