Inspired by Nelson Mandela's dream and Desmond Tutu's hope when he named post-apartheid South Africa the “Rainbow Nation,” the evening explores Canadian and South African cultural identity through song and theatre. The concert features Juno award-winning vocalist Lorraine Klaasen and her ensemble, The Rainbow Chorus, rising opera-star Justin Hopkins, and a brilliant percussion ensemble led by Ryan Scott. Experience the world premiere of a choral piece by Canadian composer Gabriel Dharmoo, work by South African composers Bongani Ndodana-Breen and Kevin Volans, interpretations of songs by Miriam Makeba, selections from Kurt Weill's "Lost in the Stars," and dramatic recitations of Mandela's journals and diaries.
