KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra

KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra

Celebrate Canada’s Diversity

Explore and celebrate Canada’s cultural diversity and pluralism with 11 world-class musicians from abroad, each performing on a unique instrument from their homeland, and one Métis, all of whom call Canada home. Kuné means “together” in Esperanto.

This ensemble brings together virtuosic musicians who have immigrated to Canada from the four corners of the earth as well as an Indigenous Canadian representative. While collaborating, fusing different cultures together in their creations, KUNÉ’s members retain their personal musical and cultural identities, expressing their musical language and personalities within the context of a musical framework.

“Kuné is a musical journey that takes listeners on a trip around the world…”

Songs In The Key of Cree

Songs In The Key of Cree

Starring renowned playwright Tomson Highway, vocalist Patricia Cano and saxophonist Marcus Ali

One of Canada’s most gifted Indigenous creative geniuses is touring southern Ontario this summer in celebration of his 70th birthday. Tomson Highway, the legendary playwright (The Rez Sisters), author (his memoir Permanent Astonishment is a current bestseller), composer/songwriter and performer, is bringing his popular cabaret to Collingwood, along with Patricia Cano, the powerhouse Peruvian-Canadian vocalist, and saxophonist Marcus Ali. And Mr. Highway himself on the piano. Prepare to be astonished!

Highway’s music spans a wide range of styles from samba to jazz, Motown, swing and cabaret. The songs will be performed cabaret-style with Highway on piano, Ali on saxophone and Cano in “my prettiest black dress.”
