REVIEWS















"A sublime afternoon of beautifully performed, cinematic compositions. So very proud and happy for you all. (Yes there were indeed a few tears shed.) Wishing you every success in the future recording and Canadian tour. EVERY gallery across Canada should be sharing this with their patrons!

"The emotionally charged Sonic Palette performance by the Algonquin Ensemble was the most appropriate way for the McMichael to commemorate the anniversary of Thomson’s death. Exactly, one hundred years after his disappearance, the combination of the atmospheric, original musical compositions and projections reminded us that Tom’s voice is still vibrantly alive through his works.”

"What a marvelous way to mark the 100th anniversary of such a profound loss. As audience members we are uplifted and grief-stricken by turns, and by the end of the concert we feel transformed by the experience of great art brilliantly presented. This masterpiece should be on tour for every Canadian to enjoy. Highly recommended!"
