Prince credited Stevie Wonder as a “role model.” Wonder said that Prince “took music to a whole other place.” These friends, sometimes collaborators, and groundbreaking icons inspired each other and the world.

The Musical Stage Company’s 13th annual signature concert spotlights hit songs from two hugely influential artists with wildly imaginative arrangements by music director Reza Jacobs. Featuring Canada’s most celebrated performers, UnCovered is a one-of-a-kind ‘unmissable’ event.

UNMISSABLE!

– BroadwayWorld

Reza Jacobs’ musical direction is immaculate.

– The National Post

To get this much talent in one beautiful venue in one night and then use it as a corporate hosting opportunity… there’s not an event in the city that beats it.

– Jordan Banks Managing Director, Facebook Canada

[The] annual Uncovered concert is my favourite event of the year.

– Lawrence Tepperman, Managing Director, K2 Digital
