We have made some changes to our creative team. Joining Andrew Balfour and Mel Braun is Vic Pankratz. Vic brings his creativity, experience and knowledge of choral repertoire to our group. You’ll get your first taste of his exciting output with Camerata Nova at Euro Nova. We also welcome the passionate and equally knowledgeable, John Wiens. Recently returned from Montréal, John replaces Ross Brownlee as our early music curator/conductor. John’s first concert with us was the masterful British Mysteries last April. More exceptional music-making can be expected next April with Isolation.
The internationally acclaimed group Ensemble Caprice invited Andrew to collaborate on a composition and perform in La Grande Gigue, a Métis-themed concert that they presented at the 14th Montreal Baroque Festival on June 24th. The experience was a major feather in Andrew’s cap and helped Camerata Nova get closer to the movers and shakers in the Montréal music scene. Andrew will be touring with Ensemble Caprice in 2017. If funding allows, it may be presented in Winnipeg… Stay tuned!
