Presented in collaboration with the 2Rivers Festival, we are thrilled to welcome Annie Sumi for our June Fourth Friday concert! Inspired by the mirrored relationship between physical and emotional landscapes, Sumi’s music speaks of human experience through the language of the senses.
Every Fourth Friday of the month enjoy free admission to the Civic Museum from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and a free concert starting at 7 p.m.
The concert will also be streamed on our Facebook Page, and available for a limited time afterwards on our YouTube channel and Museum Everywhere portal. This event takes place on the Civic Museum patio, weather permitting, please dress accordingly.
Due to high demand for seating, please arrive at the Museum and take your seat by 6:50 pm. Seats not claimed by this time may be re-assigned to rush line visitors.
Please let us know in advance if you can no longer attend so we can release the ticket to others wishing to attend.
About the Artist:
Annie Sumi is an ethereal-folk artist with a unique ability to capture the subtleties of nature and spin them into melodies. Her latest release, “Solastalgia”, reflects on the permeability of landscape in the present age of the anthropocene. The album creates a soundscape that playfully explores the harsh-beauty of the Canadian wilderness.
Since the release of her debut album, in 2015, she has received nominations for “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Canadian Folk Music Awards, 2018), “Best Singer-Songwriter” (TIMAs, 2015), “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Hidden Roots Collective, CFMAs, 2017), and more. With support from the Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, and FACTOR, she has carried these songs to stages across Canada, U.S., U.K., and central Europe. Whether she is solo, surrounded by cello and violin, or accompanied by piano, her live performance is dynamic and mesmerizing.
