Play It by Ear!
Did you know that J.S. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven regularly competed with other composers at the keyboard by improvising music based on themes suggested by the audience? Today, there’s no bigger name in improv than The Second City, which is why the TSO is joining forces with the hilarious comedy theatre to present Play It by Ear! This uniquely interactive concert demonstrates improvisatory technique in a delightfully funny way and includes performances of beloved orchestral works that were created through improv. Each show promises to be one of a kind!
Co-production with the National Arts Centre Orchestra
