The season begins with The Phantom of The Opera, featuring the classic 1925 silent film, with a new score by Toronto composer Andrew Downing, performed live-to-film by Luminos Ensemble. Director Rupert Julian’s adaptation of Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra stars Lon Chaney in the title role of the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to make Christine, the object of his obsession, a star. Considered one of the best silent horror films ever made, it remains famous for Chaney's ghastly, self-created make-up, which is said to have made audience members scream and faint at the premiere. Downing has created a new jazz-inspired score that breathes fresh life into the story, using text from the film itself. This is a one-of-a-kind event not to be missed.

Renaissance Women explores the music of historical women composers, along with works by the famous male composers who dominated their eras, demonstrating unequivocally that these women are every bit as talented, extraordinary, and deserving of hearing as the more male composers we all know and love. Featured composers include Kassia, Hildegard von Bingen, composers of sacred chant; Caterina Assandra, a contemporary of Claudio Monteverdi; Marianna Martines, duet-partner to Mozart; Imogen Holst, daughter of Gustav Holst; and others.

Back by popular demand, Locavore’ Delight II: The 100-Mile (Choral) Diet features contemporary choral music by Atlantic Canadian composers, including PEI composers Evan Hammell, Adam Hill, and Terry Pratt, as well as Kathleen Allan, Derek Charke, Emily Doolittle, and Peter Togni, among others, all based in or hailing from the four Atlantic provinces. We were very pleased last time to have the opportunity to showcase the incredible talent in our region, but there were so many wonderful works we didn’t have time to include last time - so we knew we had to do it again!
