Esprit Orchestra | I Hit My Head And Everything Changed
October 6, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20
A blast of powerful orchestral sound, Adès’ opera overture provides for the dramatic launch of Esprit’s season. Harman’s integration of video art projections inspired by his collaboration with artist Moira Ness, brings new treasure to multimedia orchestral life. One of Louie’s most expressive choral works embellishes her receiving the Molson Prize in the Arts and Abrahamsen’s compelling concerto for the left-hand showcases Avan Yu as one of Canada’s hottest young pianists.
