The first concert in our Dialogues cycle, "What Will Remain" explores themes of war and peace, memory, separation and hope.

About this event

Through poignant words and transcendent music, What Will Remain explores themes of past and present, war and peace, memory, separation and hope in a reflective programme featuring works by Ešenvalds, Paulus, Lennon & McCartney, and U2, and the premieres of two new works by Artistic Director Maria Case. Recorded live at Grace Church on-the-Hill in Toronto, The Annex Singers are joined by a stellar group of soloists, including Melanie Conly, Isabel Matwawana, Joshua Clemenger, and Jason Fowler, with film direction by Max Ackerman.
