The Listener

This is being presented by the Regina Symphony Orchestra. It’s billed as a family concert, and joining the RSO under guest conductor Alan Denike will be the Magic Circle Mime Company. The company is based in the U.S., and over the last few years they’ve performed with “scores” of symphony orchestras across North America and around the world.

The Listener is structured as a show within a concert. The latter starts out with the conductor intending to demonstrate to the audience the range of symphonic music. But things go sideways a bit when two audience members (as mimes) get overly involved with what’s going on on stage.

The concert goes at Conexus Arts Centre at 3 p.m. For ticket info call 1-866-973-9614. And to give you a sense of what The Listener is like here’s a short video clip from an earlier performance in Japan:
