What an incredible concert with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra on Saturday March 3rd!
Sarah sang a full selection of Mitchell songs from the acclaimed albums “Travelogue” and “Both Sides Now”, as arranged by multi-Grammy Award winner Vince Mendoza – who also led the orchestra. They were joined by legendary jazz musician Peter Erskine, celebrated bassist Edwin Livingston and the crazy-talented Calgarian Mark DeJong on sax.
This landmark live performance was the first of its kind in Canada – and the first ever live performance of these scores – WOW!
Needless to say, Sarah was excited.
