Tales of the Macabre



With guest artists Tom Allen and Lori Gemmell

This Hallowe’en, CBC “About Time” host Tom Allen and harpist Lori Gemmell join London Symphonia as visitors to the grotesque world of Edgar Allan Poe. 

Tom most recently joined London Symphonia as the jovial host and resident poet for Carnival of the Animals and The Hockey Sweater. This time, he reveals a seldom exposed darker side as he ushers us into the delicious cerebral torment of Poe’s mystical romanticism.

This concert features The Raven by Canadian legend Alexina Louie and André Caplet’s Conte Fantastique (inspired by Poe’s The Masque of Red Death), along with excerpts from Claude Debussy’s mysterious and powerful String Quartet.
