Sloan’s Chris Murphy joining the Art of Time Ensemble just in time for the holidays

Sloan’s Chris Murphy is known for his bitingly clever and honest lyrics paired alongside some of the catchiest and most iconic rock riffs Canada has ever heard.  But this Christmas, Murphy will be trying his hand at something completely different: fronting the Art of Time Ensemble’s To All a Good Night for at Ottawa’s Meridian Theatre at Centrepointe Mainstage.

Delighting audiences for 20 years, the Art of Time Ensemble has been blending chamber music with timeless standards and hits; while featuring some of Canada’s most recognizable names, most notably Steven Page.

With To All A Good Night, Murphy will be joined by fellow vocalists Jackie Richardson, Tom Wilson, Jessica Mitchell and David Wall for an alternative night of Christmas music meant to surprise, delight and “break the mould” of traditional holiday shows.  The audience can expect big sound and spine-tingling renditions of modern holiday classics by Joni Mitchell and the Pogues, as well as more traditional selections one might expect to hear at a holiday show.

The show is scheduled to take place on December 19, at Meridian Theatre at Centrepointe Mainstage. Tickets are now at or at the theatre box office.
