Steven Page, a founder and former leader of the iconic band Barenaked Ladies, joins Toronto’s highly inventive Art of Time Ensemble for an evening of seminal songs by Randy Newman, Radiohead, Elvis Costello, Barenaked Ladies, Leonard Cohen, Page himself, and more. These gems are re-imagined and reinvented by some of Canada’s greatest writers in classical, pop, and jazz, and delivered by a defining voice in contemporary rock.

About the Art of Time Ensemble:
Renowned concert pianist Andrew Burashko formed Art of Time Ensemble in 1997 by inviting a group of like-minded musicians and prominent figures in dance, theatre and other art forms to perform one-off concerts in Toronto. The company has gone on to become a leader in Toronto’s vibrant performing arts scene, through its subscription season at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre, regular appearances at Koerner Hall, album releases, performances with leading Canadian orchestras, and the tours of its unique offerings to dozens of cities throughout Canada and the United States.
Exploring the relationship between classical music in its many forms and other genres such as jazz, pop, electronica, rock, folk, electroacoustic, gospel and others, Art of Time seeks to reveal the qualities that lie at the heart of all great music.
