The Concert in the Dark

Composer and pianist, Frank Horvat, returns to Ottawa with his mesmerizing concert in the dark. This special concert has toured over 60 cities in North America and is coming back to Horvat’s hometown of Ottawa thanks to the support of the Slovenian and Latvian communities. Come and spend an evening with this contemporary composer as he takes you through the light and dark of a composer’s mind. His music has no words but it tells deeply personal stories that he will share. Frank Horvat’s music has been premiered throughout North America, Europe and Australia; played on TV networks like CBC & Bravo and on radio stations internationally; and his four studio albums have received critical acclaim.

Don’t miss the concert by candlelight. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Admission is FREE. Voluntary contributions in support of the artist will be greatly appreciated.

Things to know about this Concert:
The first half of the concert is filled with stories from the composer that give meaning to the virtuosic playing and unpredictable meld of musical styles that are his hallmark.

During the second half of the concert, the venue will have little or no light. Those who find the darkness overwhelming are welcome to step out of the hall at any time during the performance.

Earth Hour started in 2007 as a lights-off event to raise awareness about climate change. This year Earth Hour will be marked on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 8:30 pm local time. Earth Day has been around since 1970 as a day to honour the Earth. This year Earth Day will be celebrated internationally on Wednesday, April 22, 2015.
