Longest Night 2022 ‘Song In The Dark’ is a celebration of the human voice in song, chorus and spoken word. New compositions / writings include work by Scott Maynard, Ben Johnston-Urey, poet Peter Jickling, and Daniel Janke.
Feature soloists include Lorène Charmetant – alto, and Hannah Mazurek – soprano, as well as poet/performer Peter Jickling. Also featured on the program are the collective voices of the Problematic Orchestra.
Problematic Orchestra is Yukon’s answer to a resident orchestra. First assembled in 2015, the group has an eclectic approach to large ensemble performance practice, bringing together a diverse group of musicians for a unique genre-bashing orchestra experience. Problematic Orchestra is administered by the not-for-profit Longest Night Society.
The Longest Night Society gratefully acknowledges the support of the Yukon Arts Centre, the Canada Council for the Arts, Whitehorse Concerts, the Yukon Government, and Lotteries Yukon
