NORTH/WHITE

Wednesday, November 28, 2018
8:00pm Concert / 7:15pm Pre-Concert Chat
Koerner Hall,
TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning,
273 Bloor St. W.

PROGRAM

Anna Thorvaldsdottir (Iceland)
Dreaming (2008)*
Alexina Louie (Canada)
Take the Dog Sled (2008)
R. Murray Schafer (Canada)
North/White (1973)
*Canadian Premiere

In North/White, a snowmobile in the percussion section is counterbalanced by Schafer’s sonic portrayal of the mythic, splendid, indestructible idea of North – spacious, pure, temptationless. Louie’s Take the Dog Sledcaptures the joy, tenderness and energy of life in the arctic, the mystical quality of the land and the humour of the Inuit through its embrace of original throat songs by a Western instrumental ensemble. Thorvaldsdottir’s Dreaming, a refined, meditative, richly detailed musical embroidery, is like a mysterious shifting landscape bringing time to a halt – like in dreams.

 

Single Tickets on sale as of September 24, 2018.
