ENSEMBLE POLARIS brightens up the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve with a program of music for the festive season, all with the band’s wacky touch. Come join us for excerpts from our Nutcracker Nouveau disc and other offerings from our past repertoire, including a surprise or two!
“Whimsy runs rampant …Yet whatever nonsensical heights are reached by such brainy musical mischief are surpassed by the playing itself.” Toronto Star
“As it turns out, the banjo works great in Russian folk music, as does the musical saw…A must-listen! Lira (Sweden)
Excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet music, in our own arrangements, plus other favourites from our repertoire.
