About Ridge:

Often called the “battle that made Canada,” Vimy Ridge resulted in over 10,000 Canadian casualties. Through direct storytelling, verbatim theatre, and live music, Brendan McLeod examines misconceptions and varying perspectives around the battle, while drawing parallels to other formative events in our nation’s past. Featuring inventive musical interpretations of WWI soldier songs, Ridge probes difficult yet necessary questions about how and why we grieve. A vivid, kinetic ride through history, as well as an intimate, personal examination of our connection to the past, Ridge is a visceral work that passionately argues against the exploitation of young lives. Ridge premiered at the Chan Centre, in Vancouver in March, 2020.

Suitable for 19+

About Mt. Baker Vocal Jazz Ensemble:
The Mount Baker Vocal Jazz Ensemble, or “Baker’s Dozen”, is from Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook, under the direction of Evan Bueckert.
The group is made up of 12 auditioned singers from the school’s music program which also includes two concert orchestras, a jazz band, a concert choir, and also a recording art and music composition program.
The music students have toured to perform in festivals in such cities as New Orleans Louisiana, Vienna Austria, Prague Czech Republic, London England and New York City, as well as Moscow, Idaho and Whistler BC.
Nationally, the choir is a regular performer on CBC Music and has been a regular feature in the CBC Music Class Challenge.
This past June the Mount Baker Concert Choir was awarded second place overall in the British Columbia Performing Arts Festival in the High School Choir division, and the year before the Mount Baker Vocal Jazz ensemble was awarded first place.
