Jesse Stewart will perform his World premiere of Dynergetics for fire, ice, gongs, and drums tonight, Feb 4, as part of the 2011 Winterlude opening ceremonies. Last year, his ensemble played custom ice instruments at the Winterlude opening. They resonated beautifully at -25C.

We froze, so you can watch the videos (below) of that opening performance on Feb 5, 2010, and a repeat performance on Feb. 7 in Confederation Park from the comfort of your computer chair.

Tonight's temperatures are forecast to be a pleasant -10C. Unless you are at one of the other live performances tonight, you have no excuse not to enjoy this one live.
