West End Cultural Centre (586 Ellice Avenue)
Conducted by Mel Braun
This is the third in a series of Truth and Reconciliation concerts created by Andrew Balfour to acknowledge and honour the pain, sorrow and beauty of the experience of Canada’s Indigenous peoples. The concert is the result of three Indigenous composers (Andrew Balfour, Eliot Britton and Cris Derksen) coming together to explore the theme of captivity. Dead of Winter will be accompanied by Melody Mckiver on viola, Alexandre Tétrault on fiddle, and traditional Song Keeper and singer-drummer Cory Campbell.
