Join the Great Arts Odyssey on Friday, February 26, 2016, with the Art Gallery of Alberta and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.

Enjoy a full night of art and music, beginning with a reception at the AGA. Visit the galleries, and then make your way to the Winspear Centre for the ESO's Late Night Soundtracks special presentation of a specially-edited version of the CBC’s The Nature of Things documentary The Great Human Odyssey. The orchestra will be performing the live soundtrack, while the film's maker Dr Niobe Thompson will be narrating and former Edmontonian Darren Fung, who composed the dramatic and sweeping score, will conduct.

The ESO will also show a Charlie Chaplin short to make the evening both grand and slapstick. Grab the popcorn!
