Winnipeg Performance: February 20, 2023, 7:30 p.m.
Ukrainian Labour Temple (591 Pritchard Ave.)
Notinikew, anchors an all-Andrew Balfour concert—the perfect way to celebrate Louis Riel Day. The program will open with a number of the commissions that have made Andrew one of the leading voices in Indigenous music, including “Ispichiwin,” “Omaabiindig,” and “Trapped in Stone,” as well as old favourites like “Vision Chant” and the “Domine Deus” from Missa Brevis. Notinikew, Andrew’s response to the plight of Indigenous War veterans, will close the program, its powerful lament aided by Winston Wuttunee as narrator (MB performance), Leanne Zacharias on electro-acoustic cello, Nolan Kehler as tenor soloist, John Anderson as bass soloist, Ojibway Song Keeper Cory Campbell, and the Winnipeg Boys Choir Trebles, directed by Carolyn Boyes. At the invitation of the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec, DoW will also make its way to Montréal, where we share this same concert with new friends in Québec.
