TORONTO, CANADA Thursday May.13.2004 / -- On May 29, the Barenaked Ladies will take part in a fundraiser for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Known as "Sonic Bloom," the annual event takes place at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, Canada. The Cowboy Junkies' Margo Timmins and artist Sarah Slean and Matt Dusk are also on the bill.

BNL frontman Steve Page is looking forward to playing with the orchestra. He writes on the band's web site, "Most exciting for us is the fact that we are playing a handful of our songs with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra -- in arrangements by none other than Andy Creeggan [the original keyboardist for BNL]." Page continues, "This is our first collaboration with Andy ... since 1995. He left the band to pursue an education in composition, so it should be a lot of fun to see what he comes up with -- we've given him some pretty interesting choices. Should be fun and maybe a little nerve-wracking."
