Spectrum Music presents: Legend & Lore

In our modern world, what use do we have for mythology? Whether it be urban legend, ghost story, harmless superstition, or cultivating our own personal myths, our ancient love of legend and lore is certainly alive and well.

The lost city of Atlantis, the mermaid of Dutch folklore, and the Aztec diety Quetzalcoatl are transformed into intriguing new works performed by Toronto superstars, The Heavyweights Brass Band. In a concert to bring jazz, classical, and pop audiences together, when the lines between fact and fiction become blurry, can music fill the gap?
