The short story by Québec writer Roch Carrier, The Hockey Sweater, has become an iconic piece of Canada’s winter heritage. Join the orchestra and our “secret celebrity” narrator as we recreate this story of the youthful trauma of wearing the wrong sweater in the Les Canadiens dominated hockey culture of Québec! Complete this celebration of Canadian winter with music from the rink and seasonal sing-along favourites.
