Win tickets to Sarah Slean

The Georgia Straight presents Sarah Slean at The Rio Theatre on March 6

Hot off the heels of a performance on the prestigious TED Global stage in Edinburgh with the Cairn Quartet, a triumphant debut with Symphony Nova Scotia, and a highly successful performance with the Niagara Symphony, Sarah Slean is ready to take the Sea half of her critically acclaimed double disc Land & Sea on the road. Slean will be bringing her sweeping orchestral arrangements to life in 21 cities across Canada this spring with her Sea Tour.

Together with an incredibly talented group of musicians, including a string quintet (two violins, viola, cello, and double bass), Karen Kosowski on back-up vocals, and Mark Mariash on drums/orchestral percussion, Slean will perform nearly all of her songs that feature strings, including the stunning arrangements found on Sea, that “’unfurl like mainsails under a steady, gentle breeze” (Toronto Star) and old favourites such as Parasol and Duncan. The group will also be bringing on board symphony performers from each city along the way to join them on stage– with a number of shows featuring up to a 12-piece section.
