The concert is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 each and may be purchased online.
About the music:
Music of The Great Lakes: A Songbook for The Canadian Indigenous is a five-part suite supported and inspired by Canadian Indigenous history and the work of Indigenous Canadian artist Norval Morriseau. This suite explores the music of each lake as it hosts tribes including the Ojibwe, Cree, Huron, and the Iroquois. Each tribe holds idiosyncrasies native to its geographical zone that make for powerful rituals, ceremonies, and music.
