Chantal Kreviazuk, Raine Maida to play Creekside Theatre
Published on September 17, 2021 by Contributed
After wowing audiences at two intimate shows last October, Chantal Kreviazuk is coming back for another concert on November 16—this one also featuring her husband, Raine Maida, another renowned Canadian singer-songwriter.
Kreviazuk, a two-time JUNO Award winner and Maida, a four-time winner with Our Lady Peace, are one of Canada’s most influential cultural couples. Kreviazuk made her critically acclaimed full-length debut, Under These Rocks and Stones, in 1997. Since then, the Winnipeg born singer-songwriter has released five more studio albums, and garnered five JUNO Award nominations. Maida has forged a dynamic career as a solo artist and the front man for the band Our Lady Peace, 25-time JUNO Award nominees, including winners for Rock Album of the Year in 2003 (Gravity) and 1998 (Clumsy). The pair has also co-written countless hits for artists such as Kelly Clarkson, David Cook and Carrie Underwood.
While Kreviazuk and Maida are quick to lend their time to the studio and stage, they are equally committed to lending their help to those in need — both in Canada and internationally. In March, the couple received the 2014 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award that recognizing outstanding Canadian artists whose contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada.
“Not only am I able to express myself, and be able to play music for others and be creative for a living in life, but I can go to the next level and be a part of true greatness — the process of another human being’s healing, possibly playing even a small role in improving the quality of life of another,” Kreviazuk said.
War Child Canada is one of the many organizations the married couple has embraced. Kreviazuk is an honourary founder and active in various causes including women’s rights, war refugees and child education. Maida launched War Child’s Busking for Change program, in which Canadian musicians have raised money for children in the world’s most devastated regions, supporting initiatives such as the construction of schools in the Congo. Additionally, the couple has recorded contributions for multiple benefit albums for War Child.
“I was first drawn to music because of the inherent ‘hope’ it provided me,” Maida said. “Social activism carries that same promise and the two together have shaped and taught me more than I could ever repay.”
The Tuesday, November 16 concert will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets will be on sale beginning Friday, September 17, 2021 at 10 am at Raine Maida & Chantal Kreviazuk | Ticket Seller Box Office
Current Public Health Orders will allow 125 tickets to be available, while last year’s concerts were limited to 40 attendees for each of the two shows. This year’s event will be open to people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and all attendees must provide proof of vaccination and photo identification as directed by current Public Health Orders.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience as we collectively work through the newest public health orders and prepare our theatre for reopening,” says Ryan Donn, Cultural Development Coordinator. “For the last few months, we have been working on our biggest show yet and we are tremendously proud that Canadian music icons, Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk, will grace our stage for an extremely intimate show. As always we continue to aim to be the small theatre with big shows.”
Beginning September 20, attendees at all events at the Creekside Theatre we will need to provide proof of full vaccination (two dose BC Vaccine Card or equivalent) prior to entering the building. This allows an increase of attendees to 50% of the theatre capacity.
