Celtic jazz harpist Johanne McInnis’ environmental awareness production in Wolfville and Grand Pre will take us on a musical journey through a day of our lives in which humanity and nature intertwine.
McInnis, aware of the needs around us, will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Newfoundland Relief Fund. The Show will use the sounds of harp, bass, percussion, keyboard and voice to play with the colours of sounds. Scenes from nature will be projected on screen. This show is a culmination of the artists’ vision and belief in the power of art as a catalyst to affect social issues.
