Notes de programme :
Hockey has imprinted itself on the collective Canadian consciousness. Whether you love it or hate, the sport touches, in some way, most people’s lives in this country. That may be pick-up games of shinny, or Saturday nights with the family gathered around the television or annoyance of the endless talk of trades and standings in the office cafeteria. A subject that inspires such a range of emotions is ideal for the creation of meaningful art. The Hockey Cantata for children’s chorus and full orchestra is a reflective look at the joys of friendship and the Canadian winter through the eyes of young people.

The 10-minute work, divided into seven sections, details a Friday afternoon and evening in a small Canadian town: the thrill and anticipation once the school bell finally rings, the impatience of waiting for the evening, the joy of treats to eat, the big game and the wonder of walking home beneath a star-filled winter sky. Not everyone is a hockey fan, but a sense of appreciation for the things that bind us together as a community is universal.
