1000 Strings Comes to Hintonburg Park

Feel the power of 1000 string instruments all playing together, live in Hintonburg Park, as Ottawa Chamberfest continues in program in neighbourhood parks.

You won’t want to miss the fun as Grammy-winning violinist James Ehnes, Carol Gimbel’s Music in the Barns, the Gryphon Trio‘s Roman Borys and Annalee Patipatanakoon, and a host of local string-player celebrities lead a mass string ensemble in a unique, participatory concert experience.

Written by award-winning Canadian composer John Oswald, Spectre was commissioned by the Kronos Quartet in 1990. The work combines live quartet with multi-layered overdub, creating the illusion of a 1000-piece string orchestra. With 1000 Strings, the community joins forces to make that illusion a reality.
