Discover the beauty, intrigue, pride and sorrow of Canadian Indigenous music. Taken features the resonant legacy of traditional music, including the personal songs of elders. It also showcases three premières by Jeremy Dutcher, a New Brunswick Maliseet composer/vocal artist now living in Toronto; Lindsay Knight (Eekwol), a composer and hip-hop artist extraordinaire from Saskatoon; and our own Andrew Balfour offering a dramatic work about Frobisher taking Inuit back to England as “curiosities.” Taken is Camerata Nova’s contribution to the national truth and reconciliation initiative.

Isolation

ISOLATION

Date: Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 7:30 pm & Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm

Venue: St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church (315 Munroe Avenue, at the corner of Brazier)

Conductor/Curator: John Wiens

To our great delight, John Wiens waves his magic wand over us again in 2017, offering contemplative a cappella early music at its finest – a perfect start to Easter week. Isolation features music and composers who express the depth and beauty of profound isolation, including Cardoso, Josquin des Prés, White, Créquillon, Browne and not-so-early Balfour. Despite some of this music being over 400 years old, it all points to catharsis in our own moment in time. We are thrilled to rediscover the beautiful acoustics of the St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church for this concert.
