May and June

Just a few concerts at this time of year...

May 6th: Magnificat by Women's Voices Chorus in Chapel Hill NC (from a review of this performance: “The next selection was the striking setting of the Magnificat by Canadian composer Christine Donkin. Soloist, Kim McCorkle, with a pure, uncluttered vocal timbre, started with what could have been an incipit, but it continued with the chorus picking up vocalizations on selected vowels and extending them. The effect was mystical, suggestive of an echo chamber six to eight times the size of Duke Chapel if you can imagine such a sonic experience.”) 

May 19th and 21st: Album of Old Photographs (marimba and piano) by Zac Pulak and Edana Higham at the Canadian Tulip Festival here in Ottawa. 

May 27th: something (not sure what) by Esprit de Choeur Women's Choir in Winnipeg MB

June 12th: Udo, Shalom (for youth orchestra and youth choir) - premiere performance by OrKidstra here in Ottawa

June 23rd: Three Short Stories (violin and two guitars) by Trio Tangere at Guitar Foundation of America 2018 Convention in Louisville KY

June 30th: Four Choral Critters (SATB with piano) by Vox - Farnham Chamber Choir in Farnham, Surrey, England. 

I'll also be adjudicating the Alberta Piano Teachers' Association Composition Competition.
