Music of the Ice with Kurt Browning
Jan 19, 2018 – Jan 21, 2018 at the Centennial Concert Hall
World Champion, Olympian and Canadian icon Kurt Browning hosts an evening of figure skating’s greatest hits, taking audiences on a behind-the-scenes journey into the figure skating world!
Kurt hosts this concert with spoken introductions from the stage preceding each musical selection. The program features music that was famously used by skaters past and present, such as Boléro (Torvill & Dean), Phantom of the Opera (Davis & White, Patrick Chan), Bizet Carmen (Katarina Witt/Debbie Thomas), and Singin’ in the Rain (Kurt Browning).
Kurt speaks to the audience about his experiences both as a competitive amateur skater and a professional skater. He brings the audience “backstage” with anecdotes and stories of memorable moments of skating such as the epic “Battle of the Brians” from Calgary ’88 or Joannie Rochette’s emotional skate from Vancouver 2010 just days after her mother passed away.
