THE STAMPEDERS ~ IN CONCERT
Presented by Shantero Productions

Stampeders_600x600-min

‘They’re on their way, to the city lights’ … and, THE predominant Canadian Rock ‘n’ Roll band of the 1970s – The Stampeders – are bringing along all their classic hits: Wild Eyes, Carry Me, Oh My Lady, Devil You, Monday Morning Choo Choo, Minstrel Gypsy, Hit the Road Jack and, of course, the quintessential Canadian – and Hall of Fame – song, Sweet City Woman! A veritable soundtrack to a whole generation that will ‘carry you home’ … maybe not to Birmingham … but back to a time of tie-dyed t-shirts and elevator shoes, 15¢ coffee and homemade apple pie, dating and dreaming … By the time The Stampeders get to the first chorus of the first song, everyone will be singing along.

No seventies group represented Canada’s musical identity to the world like The Stampeders. A quick look at Canada’s music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country’s international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time. In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992. Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit Sweet City Woman.

The enduring musical legacy of The Stampeders… ‘better catch a noon train, better get there for a rock ‘n’ rolling good time!’

Did you know? If you have a ticket for Canada’s Ballet Jörgen: Coppélia, you can get 25% off tickets for Ballet Jörgen’s Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet™. (Offer available April 7/19 – April 30/19.)

Coppélia is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballets and is the best known and most performed comedic ballet. It is a daring, bold and funny story that takes us into the mysterious mind of Dr. Coppélius, a lonely and disillusioned toy maker who wishes he could bring a perfect doll to life. CBJ’s contemporary retelling of the story will delight audience of all ages.

Dr. Coppélius creates Coppélia, a stunning, life-sized dancing doll. The story’s beauty and hilarity develop quickly as Nathanael, one of the local villagers, falls madly in love with the doll. His sweetheart Klara enacts revenge, and confusion and love are explored through her pretending to be Coppélia to punish Nathanael.

Choreographed by Bengt Jörgen and set to the original score by Leo Delibes, CBJ’s production of Coppélia originally premiered in 2001 and is an international co-production between Canada’s Ballet Jörgen and The Hong Kong Ballet.

Coppélia’s choreography will take advantage of the exceptional technical standards of the company’s current dancers. The production reflects our classical identity, and storytelling approach with humor, intimacy and dramatic intensity.

Coppélia is one of the company’s most popular family ballets.

CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE PERFORMS:
QUEEN – A NIGHT AT THE OPERA
Note for Note. Cut for Cut.

Queen’s ‘A Night at the Opera’ was a game changer for rock ’n’ roll. If you grew up in the 70s, this album was everywhere. All of a sudden, long haired rockers were singing along to operatic songs with soaring arrangements. A far cry from Foghat.

Queen became one of the world’s greatest bands by working hard. They toured endlessly and in the studio – they strived for perfection. And that’s our challenge. How do you learn perfection? Answer: By working hard.

Nick Walsh rallied to sing this album. Originally a rock singer, Nick found his theatre vibe singing the David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust album. Now he’s immersed in the brilliance and effortlessness of Freddie Mercury’s voice. Alongside the vocals comes the challenge of Brian May’s overdubbed guitar sound. We’ve got a small army of guitarists to cover the flash and fun.

Classic Albums Live loves a good challenge. Queen provides just that. We’re all familiar with “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “You’re My Best Friend” but it’s the deep tracks like “Prophet Song” and “Love of My Life” that reveal a profound depth of songwriting. We’re ready.
