High Flight: Songs of the Stars is a multi-media choral performance the Elmer Iseler Singers – a sonic splendour combined with captivating photographs and images of space, highlighting music of the spheres by Canadian composers Eleanor Daley, Imant Raminsh, Jason Jestadt, Ruth Watson Henderson, R. Murray Schafer, and Harry Somers, as well as the performance of a work by Lydia Adams, with text by Dr. Roberta Bondar describing her experience of leaving Earth and coming back once again to its sublime beauty. Dr. Bondar will speak at the event about the search in the stars for new possibilities for life on other planets.
The concert is part of a series of events entitled - Mabel Bell: Celebrating a Life & Legacy of Outstanding Nova Scotia Achievements in Art & Science. To mark Canada’s 150th anniversary, we are celebrating unique achievements and contributions through a series of activities hosted and delivered by Nova Scotians in historically significant communities and places.
2017 not only marks Canada’s 150th, it marks the 110th Anniversary of the formation of the Aerial Experiment Association (October 1, 1907) and the central role of Mabel Bell - the first woman in the world to fund, form and manage an aviation company and 25 years since Dr. Roberta Bondar became Canada’s first woman in space.
The concert will be held at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, on Friday, July 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40.00 per person.
