IMPORTANT: Presented as a special show in addition to regular Sled Island programming, passholder admission to this show works differently than most Sled Island shows. If you’re a Discovery Plus passholder, a ticket to this show in section B is included as one of your 2018 pass perks. This show is not included with the Discovery Pass or All-Ages Pass, but we're pleased to share an exclusive discount code for 15% off tickets in sections A - D (subject to availability) with all passholders.
You’ve seen Owen Pallett at Sled Island before, but never like this. The Polaris Prize-winning composer, arranger and performer is collaborating with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) for a night of music at the Jack Singer Concert Hall on Saturday, June 23.
In the pop culture world, Pallett built his success on four ambitious solo albums, collaborations with everyone from Arcade Fire to Frank Ocean, an Academy Award nomination for his work on Her (2013), and a tireless live show centred around loops. Meanwhile, he’d earned the trust and devotion of the classical world with commissions from the Barbican, the National Ballet of Canada and the Vancouver CBC Orchestra. As far as relationship goals go, Sled Island and CPO are over the moon for this booking.
Whether you’re used to black tie or jean jackets, we think there will be something very special for you at this show.
