Hot on the heels of its universally acclaimed The War of the Worlds, the Art of Time Ensemble, under the Artistic Direction of Andrew Burashko, presents The Songbook 5, featuring celebrated Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Slean on Tuesday, May 24 and Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre.

Sarah Slean performs 12 of her favourite songs, including original material and covers of songs by Ruth Lowe (I’ll Never Smile Again), Leonard Cohen (A Thousand Kisses Deep), Joni Mitchell (Little Green), Blue Rodeo (Bad Timing), Björk (Joga), Kurt Weil (Lost In The Stars), Jacques Brel (Ne Me Quitte Pas), Queen (The Show Must Go On) and others; re-imagined by extraordinary composers from the worlds of classical, jazz and pop music.

The evening also features a brand-new instrumental suite by award-winning composer Jonathan Goldsmith, commissioned by the Art of Time Ensemble with support from the Esther Gelber Fund which is administered by the Canadian Music Centre.

The Art of Time Ensemble one of Toronto’s most innovative and artistically resonant music ensembles. The ensemble has attracted the interest and participation of some of Canada’s best performers. Art of Time provides a unique musical experience that breaks down barriers between artistic and musical disciplines, and reveals the vibrancy of classical music as a contemporary artistic expression, appealing to a range of audiences.
