Thorgy and the Thorchestra: Back and better than ever! at Rebecca Cohn Auditorium
She’s baaaaack! After last summer’s groundbreaking “Thorgy and the Thorchestra” show – a sold-out smash hit that sparked a social media sensation – the fabulous Thorgy Thor returns to Symphony Nova Scotia! Fresh from encore performances with orchestras across North America, the reigning “Queen of Classical Music” wields her outrageous fashion sense, razor-sharp wit, and virtuoso classical chops to create a thrilling, theatrical, all-new show. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and your heart will throb as Thorgy slays with song, dance, and hilarious shenanigans in this can’t-miss symphonic spectacular!
Tickets; $30 to 60
