SEASON 2019-2020


In early April, we let you, our subscribers and ticket buyers, know that our May 2020 performance of Captive had been rescheduled to September 2020. This decision was made in accordance with the provincial public health guidelines for COVID-19 to ensure the health and safety of both audience members and singers.

We have watched carefully as the provincial guidelines and overall situation have evolved and come to the recognition that the likelihood of a September concert is limited, we have decided to postpone our Captive concert.

Thank you for your support and understanding, stay safe, and we look forward to presenting this special concert for you some time in the future.

Captive is the third in our series of Truth and Reconciliation concerts, featuring new works on the theme of “captivity” by Indigenous composers/performers, including electro-acoustic specialist Eliot Britton, hip-hop artist Zoey Roy, cellist Cris Derksen, our very own Andrew Balfour, and more. Under Andrew’s leadership, we’ve been pushing the envelope on contemporary Indigenous music for more than ten years, discovering and collaborating with incredibly talented Indigenous artists and helping to bridge Indigenous and settler communities.

Captive est le troisième de notre série de concerts sur la vérité et de la réconciliation, et comprendra de nouvelles œuvres sur le thème de la « captivité » par des compositeurs/interprètes autochtones, dont le spécialiste électroacoustique Eliot Britton, l’artiste hip-hop Zoey Roy, la violoncelliste Cris Derksen et notre propre Andrew Balfour. Sous la direction d’Andrew, nous repoussons les limites de la musique autochtone contemporaine depuis plus de 10 ans, en découvrant des artistes autochtones incroyables et en collaborant avec eux, et en aidant à rapprocher la communauté autochtone et celle des colons. Andrew Balfour, concepteur/compositeur; Mel Braun, chef de chœur
