WNED | WBFO Presents: A Trip to See Come From Away

Saturday, March 23, 2019

Hosted by Program Director of Classical WNED Mark Michaud


Come From Away
Elgin Theatre
189 Yonge St
Toronto


A New Musical by Irene Sankoff & David Hein, Directed by Christopher Ashley

Starring: Saccha Dennis, Steffi Didomenicantonio, Barbara Fulton, Lisa Horner, James Kall, George Masswohl, Ali Momen, Jack Noseworthy, Cory O’Brien, Kristen Peace, Eliza-Jane Scott, Kevin Vidal, Susan Dunstan, Kate Etienne, Amir Haidar, Jeff Madden, David Silvestri, and Cailin Stadnyk.

It’s been called the “edge of the world.” The weather is wild, but the locals never lack for warmth. And it’s here, in Newfoundland, where a remote town became the epicenter of a remarkable true story filled with unusual characters, unexpected camaraderie and uncommon generosity.

Hosted by: Mark Michaud

Mark Michaud is enjoying his first year as afternoon host and Program Director of Classical WNED. He came to Buffalo from the San Francisco Bay area, where he was music director for KDFC/San Francisco and KUSC/Los Angeles. While the move may seem like an extreme climate change, Mark is originally from Northern Maine, so he’s not easily scared by winter weather. Mark studied music (piano and voice) at the University of Maine, and still sings recreationally. He is a baritone in the choir at Calgary Episcopal Church in Williamsville. Mark wasted no time in becoming familiar with the cultural scene in Buffalo...he’s a big fan of JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic. When he’s not working or singing, you’ll likely find Mark at home, reading the New York Times and…. listening to music!
