On tour thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, Peter Hum will play alongside three stars of Maritime jazz: Charlottetown guitarist Ian Toms, Antigonish saxophonist Kenji Omae, and Antigonish trumpeter Paul Tynan. They will be joined by Montreal bassist Alec Walkington, and Guelph drummer Ted Warren.

Downbeat Magazine awarded his most recent album, Ordinary Heroes, a coveted four-star rating. London Jazz News praised the album as “a very satisfying set packing an emotional punch”. The music on Ordinary Heroes takes a progressive stance and was inspired by the social and political turmoil that preceded its release in March 2020. Jazzweekly.com critic George W. Harris called Hum’s music “jazz that gets up, stands up for your rights”. Hum has composed an album’s worth of new music since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and he looks forward to sharing his latest uplifting compositions in performances going forward.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
