Murray McLauchlan

This event does not repeat

Feb. 19 -- Murray McLauchlan. S

hantero Productions is pleased to present Murray McLauchlan who is one of Canada's most highly regarded singer/songwriters, and with good cause. Over a 48 year career, he has released 19 albums and been awarded 11 Junos. His songs Farmer's Song, Down by the Henry Moore, Whispering Rain and Sweeping the Spotlight Away are now considered Canadian standards.

Murray is also a painter, an author, an actor, a radio host; he's been bestowed an honourary Doctor of Laws and appointed to The Order of Canada. That's quite a ride. Until recently Murray's touring had been restricted to Lunch At Allen's, whose members also include Ian Thomas, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church. But with the release of his critically acclaimed Love Can't Tell Time, he's back on the road treating concert goers to a seamless blend of old and new.

Here's what he has to say: "As a songwriter I know that it's not enough to sit in your kitchen and write. Your songs need to be heard. Music is a communicative art and if it isn't brought in front of people there is no way to tell if that end has been met. I like to think of a concert tour as a kind of roving gallery to test your art and your ideas. I try to do my very best to make it worthwhile for folks to be there and to perhaps look at thing in a new way when they leave."

All Seats $48.00. There is an additional $1.13 per ticket when purchased online.

7:30pm.

The Music of the Night-The Legacy & Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber

The Music of the Night-The Legacy & Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber

Friday, March 20, 2020 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

All Seats $40.00. There is an additional $1.13 per ticket when purchased online.

For over half a century, Andrew Lloyd Webber's music has dazzled audiences. He has composed 13 musicals, a song cycle, a set of variations, two film scores, and a Latin Requiem Mass. Several of his songs have been widely recorded and were hits outside of their parent musicals, notably "The Music of the Night" and "All I Ask of You" from The Phantom of the Opera, "I Don't Know How to Love Him" from Jesus Christ Superstar, "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" from Evita, "Any Dream Will Do" from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and "Memory" from Cats. In 2001 The New York Times referred to him as "the most commercially successful composer in history". Ranked the "fifth most powerful person in British culture" by The Daily Telegraph in 2008, the lyricist Don Black stated "Andrew more or less single-handledly reinvented the musical".
In Celebration of The Lord Lloyd-Webber's music, Zac Mansfield has put together a new revue show featuring all of your favourite songs...plus some more obscure gems from Andrew's lesser-known shows.
This tribute concert is produced and conceived by Zac Mansfield and was originally commissioned by the Mansfield's Cabaret in Oshawa. This touring version replicates what the sold-out crowds in Oshawa fell in love with so much.
"Sing, my angel of music."
