2017 Honens Festival: Storytellers I

9 September 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Co-presented by National Music Centre


Dmitry Nesterov piano

Hazel Hutchins narrator

Tess loves the prairie, but her parents do not. Coming from an easier life, far, far away, they resent the bitter cold winter and the poverty that means burning cow dung for fuel. Based on a true incident, Tess combines authenticity with drama. Set during the 1930s in the Canadian West, it is a remarkable story of a family whose older members are immigrants but whose children are, in the truest sense, at home.

Concert Duration

This concert will last approximately 30 minutes.


Storytellers concerts are for the whole family. They feature popular children’s stories set to music and encourage kids to read while exposing them to classical music—often for the first time.
