Soundstreams’ 35th season opens with a celebration of kindred northern identities. The Lapland Chamber Orchestra performs music by iconic composers from Canada and Finland, past and present, including Jean Sibelius, Harry Somers, and Claude Vivier. Doubly marking Canada’s sesquicentennial and Finland at 100, this program by Europe’s northernmost professional orchestra includes dance by powerhouse choreographer Michael Greyeyes, the world premiere of Soundstreams’ 35th Anniversary Fanfare, and gems by Stravinsky and Debussy.
