For the first time ever, the Centennial Concert Hall is going to co-host a post-concert party with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Culture Card, and Love Life Productions to create The HUB: Symphonie Fantastique!
There will be more than 40 different artists performing under one roof showcasing true Winnipeg talent, and a first ever collaboration with Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers.
The evening begins with a concert presentation of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique at 7:30 pm, followed by The HUB's post-concert celebration at 8:30 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm. This evening is part of the WSO’s Music of the Impressionists Festival.
We will get to experience a beautiful showcase of local artists from different creative communities. There will be visual art and projections by a selection of artists from Flash Festival, coordinated by Leif Norman. The Fall and Winter collections of Lennard Taylor Design Inc and Dediger will be showcased in a fashion show with 20 international models from Swish Model Management.
DJ Mav One (Ricky Ramdath) will be playing Funk and Motown on the 1st floor, and DJ Nathan Zahn from MEMETIC will spin the best house music. There will be a live performance by Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers, and live painting by Nereo II and Pat Lazo from the Graffiti Gallery. Guests will enjoy a free welcome drink.
This will be a fantastic opportunity to network, meet new friends, dance to great tunes, and celebrate the multiculturalism of Winnipeg in one of the best venues in the city.
