“Trout Lake Park” premieres with Voice to Voice

I am pleased and excited to collaborate with Vancouver’s Voice to Voice project and the Thursday’s Writing Collective¬†to set poems by the collective for voice along with several other Vancouver composers. “Trout Lake Park” was written by poet Gilles Cyrrene¬†will be performed by Ian Bannerman. It was a great treat to see the Writing Collective in action and set Gilles words to music. I know Trout Lake well and approached the work as a meditation, rather than the usual teleological western style art song.

The concert takes place at UBC and St. James Church in the DTES. Tickets are free.
