Buffy Sainte-Marie performing with The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO)
I have a soft spot for Buffy Sainte-Marie and have always loved her music and political activism. It’s great to see her back in Toronto and even more exciting to know she’s performing with The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) at Roy Thomson Hall on Thursday, June 30, 2016, at 7:30pm.
The Canadian icon was the winner of the 2015 Polaris Music Prize for her latest album, Power In The Blood. Under the musical direction of Canadian conductor Lucas Waldin, the evening will include some of Sainte-Marie’s greatest hits, as well as excerpts from her most recent album, which took home two JUNO awards—for Aboriginal Album of the Year and Contemporary Roots Album of the Year.
A musician, composer, visual artist, educator, pacifist, and social activist, Buffy Sainte-Marie is an exceptional, multi-talented individual who defies categorization. Sainte-Marie’s audacious attitude toward life, on and off the stage, has inspired people around the world for over five decades. Her accomplishments are extraordinary. An Academy Award winner, she has received countless awards and accolades, including a medal from Queen Elizabeth II; Officer of the Order of Canada; and a Gemini Award.
This concert takes place at Roy Thomson Hall, 60 Simcoe Street and tickets ranging from $27–$70 can be purchased by calling the TSO ticket line at 416.598.3375 or ordering online at TSO.CA
