Massey Hall presents
Leading her band of Canada’s top jazz musicians and a large orchestra, JUNO Award-winning jazz vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow will bring to life her much anticipated 11th album Clear Day (October 2015). Recorded with Holland’s Metropole Orkest, this dynamic new project highlights her inventive arrangements and pushes her vocal style to a new level. Join Emilie-Claire for an exciting evening of new and classic repertoire.
Joining Barlow and the orchest is composer, orchestrator and conductor Jules Buckley, a musical pioneer who pushes the boundaries of contemporary genres.
