In 1977, NASA sent the Voyager spacecraft deep into space in the hopes of connecting with other beings. On board were recordings that attempted to explain the story of humans on Earth through music, sound and speech. Music Director Mike Ross takes us on an extra-terrestrial journey inspired by the original Voyager Golden Records.

Each original Soulpepper Concert revolves around a time, place, or artist, crafted by a team of incomparable performers. The Concert Series is led by Slaight Family Director of Music Mike Ross, featuring the Soulpepper ensemble and special guests.
