Yukon's eclectic ensemble Problematic Orchestra brings a unique approach to classic and new Canadian music.
The theme for Longest Night 2019 is 'Canadiana.' What music shaped our childhood experiences growing up in Canada? What does Canadian music mean to us now? If we are new to the country, or if we are part of a nation within a nation, what do we identify as Canadian music? The 2019 solstice program includes arrangements of a few surprise Canadian classics, and will also feature the Kwanlin Dághàlhaan K’e Dancers. In addition, Longest Night Society has searched out new works from composers across the country, and has commissioned new pieces from ensemble members Keitha Clark, Emily Tredger, Scott Maynard, Paul Lucas and director Daniel Janke.
