THE SCOOP | Toronto Symphony And Red Sky Performance To Join Forces In New Production

By Michael Vincent on February 2, 2021

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) and Red Sky Performance have put out a call seeking musical artists to work alongside members of the TSO towards a reimagined version of Mistatim, a performance for young audiences that originally premiered in 2016.

The new version will include newly created music by four Indigenous music creators and eight TSO musicians. The collaboration will include mentorship sessions with Indigenous and TSO musicians, creators, and composers, including TSO’s Composer Advisor, Gary Kulesha.

“By bringing together the rich tradition of music-making in Indigenous culture with a leading classical-based orchestra like the TSO, we believe we will learn from one another and create something very timely and special,” says Red Sky’s Executive and Artistic Director Sandra Laronde.

“Red Sky has played an important role in the cultural landscape of Canada, giving voice to Indigenous artists for over 20 years,” said the TSO’s Matthew Loden. “We are pleased to be entering this collaboration and are eager to learn, and to continue to engage more deeply with Indigenous artists across Canada.”

The reimagined version of Mistatim is scheduled to appear online next fall.

Applications are being accepted through February 12, 2021. See here for more details.
