Can't make it to New York's Carnegie Hall to see the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra's performance on Thursday? You can still hear it online.

The program features three works: Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer's Symphony No. 1; Derek Charke's Thirteen Inuit Throat Song Games, featuring acclaimed Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq; and WSO composer-in-residence Vincent Ho's The Shaman: Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra, showcasing Scottish virtuoso percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, who also gave the piece's world première during the WSO's 2011 New Music Festival.
