Pre-concert talk at 6:45 pm on Saturday and at 2:15 pm on Sunday

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.
