Inspired by the mystery, beauty, and grandiosity of the night sky, Spellbound tells the story of a group of mischievous young stars. As each star awakes to the universe and discovers the power of their light, they begin to dance and swirl in the sky, drawing in the gazes of those on Earth. Their movement creates patterns in the sky as, together, they form a new constellation. Onlookers become spellbound by their beauty as they illuminate the night.
Spellbound was commissioned by the Hamilton Children's Choir through the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. It received its world premiere at "No Strings Attached" on May 25, 2019 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It's international/staged premiere took place on July 16, 2019 at the 7th World Youth & Children’s Choir Festival’s in Hong Kong, China.
