Peggy Hills, Artistic Director of The Chamber Music Society, in consultation with an artistic and scientific collaboration of a First Nations professional performer and composer, a South Asian Carnatic violinist, a Chinese virtuoso musician, an astronomer from Royal Astronomical Society of Mississauga and two Canadian actors, created the narrative for “Our Night Sky”. The narrative is supported by a new musical score composed by Mississauga composer Michael Coghlan and it incorporates many musical styles including electronic/digital, classical, world and improvised. On stage, will be a narrator, 10 musicians, with a conductor, projected sky images on screens behind, above and around the concert hall, and special lighting effects.
