Canada Wild
Canada Wild
In 2014 Bill Pratt and Ian Douglas of Almonte, Ontario decided to deepened audiences' experience of our country by creating an original musical score to be performed live to images of Canada and the Artic. Ian composed and arranged three new pieces of world/classical music: Artic Dreams, Algonquin Wild, and Yukon; each of which was directly inspired by Bill's images of the Canadian Wilderness and surrounding Artic regions. The pieces are performed in "sync" to the photographic images which unfold on a giant screen to create a visual and musical "story: showcasing Canada's magnificent natural beauty.

Artic Dreams - is dark, barren, and haunting featuring stark landscapes, icebergs, birds, and polar bears; Algonquin Wild - is gentle, playful, and heartwarming - filled with wildlife and landscapes of Algonquin Park; and Yukon - is colourful, majestic, and vibrant featuring mountain landscapes and animals of the Yukon and Northern BC wilderness.

This unique evening will include the three pieces performed by the Raintree Earth Ensemble (piano, cello, vocal, and percussion), related travel stories and time for audience questions. Join us in celebrating extraordinary Canada on the eve of our Country's 150th Birthday.
