Sarah to play with Symphony NS in 2012

On Friday April 13, 2012 Sarah returns to the Rebecca Cohn in Halifax for her debut performance with Symphony Nova Scotia.  The concert is part of their Maritime Fusion Concerts and tickets are currently available to season ticket holders.  General ticket sale starts on August 2nd of this year according to their program that got released today.

Symphony Nova Scotia's collaborations with other song writers in the past including Buck65 and Jenn Grant have been recorded by the CBC and the same might hold true for this concert.

At the time of the concert Sarah's double album 'Land and Sea' will be out and feature orchestrated arrangements for the Sea portion.  Not much else is known about this show at this time but I will post updates closer to key dates as the information comes available.

Sarah has had a history of playing with Orchestras across the country.  In 2004  she played a few of her songs from Day One with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.  Months later she would play the song The Score with National Arts Centre Orchestra at the Govenor General Awards.  In 2007 Sarah payed tribute to Joni Mitchell's music with the CBC Radio Orchestra and a year later she would play with Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.  Over the last few years Sarah has played a multiple of different shows and put out an album with The Art of Time Ensemble.  In May this year she will play with them again and in June she will do a live recording for album 'Sea' with Orchestra London (ON).
