Pauletta Washington returns to Toronto to perform her new concert Chronicle
Toronto ON – Pauletta Washington returns to Toronto after her sold out concert last fall, with a new show, Chronicle. Joined by her band Mamazband, Washington will be performing two nights at the Randolph Theatre (736 Bathurst St.) Sept. 13 and Sept. 14, 2015 at 7 p.m.
“Last year’s show was so much fun. Having lived in Toronto for so many years, it felt like coming home,” says Washington. “This year, I am returning with a different show. Chronicle will entertain and invite our audience to consider what is going on in the world.”
Chronicle is a multimedia show featuring song, spoken word and world music, combined with amazing video elements on a 30-foot curved screen. The audience will be treated to some reworkings of classic rock and soul, together with reinventions of historically significant works - music from Ukranian Kobzars, the Afghanistan Civil War and the Uzbekistan vanished courts - deemed worthy of protection by the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Washington performs with Mamazband, a musical United Nations playing instruments from around the world.
Washington is also introducing in her concert support for her global initiative Got Bounce?. Got Bounce? is an educational series focusing on building resilience and the skills needed for recovery from any crisis. Empowering people in the face of disasters and conflicts is no easy task for any nation. Washington is part of the UNDP’s global network, developing and sharing innovative approaches to peace building, lifelong learning and resilience.
Chronicle will be presented at the Randolph Theatre (736 Bathurst St., south of Bloor) on Sept. 13 and Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $50 each (includes all fees and taxes) and are available now at ticketmaster.ca, or by phone at 1-855-985-2787. All proceeds benefit Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts.
