Signed to Atlantic/Warner Records at the tender age of nineteen, 4-time Juno nominee and modern-day Renaissance woman Sarah Slean has since released 11 albums in over 10 countries worldwide – but perhaps the most astonishing aspect of her artistry is its breadth. Over her 25-year career, Slean has published two volumes of poetry, starred in short films and a movie musical (spawning two Gemini Award nominations), penned award-winning chamber works, held numerous exhibitions of her paintings and shared the stage with 10 of the country’s professional orchestras. Classically trained from the age of 5, she routinely collaborates with cutting-edge contemporary classical ensembles like The Art of Time, and has been invited to sing world premieres by Canada’s leading living composers.


Indulge in a sensory symphony as you envision yourself on a sunlit patio, savouring the exquisite flavours of authentic pizza from The Canabrians and delectable County favourites from Cressy Mustard Cantina, all while being serenaded by the enchanting melodies of Sarah Slean, who lends her unique voice to the iconic tunes of Joni Mitchell.
