WNMF4 – CROSSING GROUND

Canadian Symphonic Samplings

A profound experience that transcends any and all musical genres.” – The Toronto Star on Ann Southam

The Canadian symphonic landscape continues to evolve rapidly. This evening takes the temperature of this landscape with works by two of Canada’s most influential women composers – Ann Southam and Violet Archer – and two modern voices of growing importance – Larysa Kuzmenko and Kati Agócs. Matthew Patton’s rendition of ambient music/ multimedia pioneer Brian Eno’s Music from Apollo and Winnipegger Örjan Sandred delivers a new commission from the WSO to complete the program.
