Yanni could be considered the world’s most popular musical diplomat. Stripping his music of the burden of language, the Greek-born showman’s fiery, pop-infused instrumental compositions and romantic ballads have sold millions and transcended borders across the globe. His mighty melodies have been heard in every Olympic television broadcast since 1988, and his 1994 Live at the Acropolis video remains one of the best-selling music videos of all time. Throughout the summer, the gregarious tunesmith tours to tout his 19th studio album, Truth of Touch. Like a New Age Mountain Dew commercial, Yanni and his multinational orchestra will take adult-contemporary music to the extreme in their bounding performance. The frontman attacks his banks of keyboards and pianos as the brass, string, and harp sections propel sonic elegiacs into the audience. A kaleidoscopic light show illuminates the stage as Yanni and company play brand-new selections mixed with decades' worth of classic hits, such as the sylvan, flute-tinged “Nightingale.”
Sony Centre For The Performing Arts
The largest soft-seat theatre in Canada, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts is perhaps most famous for its overhanging marquee outside. The diagonal canopy and its snake-like rows of lights were restored to their original form in 2010, along with the facility’s wood, brass, and marble accents. Inside the lobby, York Wilson’s mural, The Seven Lively Arts, fills eyes with fractured, panoramic representations of various artistic media, from slanted musical staffs to menacing Greek theatre masks.
