The Vancouver International Song Institute (VISI) Art song lab recently approved my application for their workshop in Art song writing! I am very excited to be heading back to Vancouver after spending some time in Toronto, and I have to admit, I do miss the seaside, mountains, and cheap food! Presented in partnership with the Canadian Music Centre BC Regional Hub, the Art Song Lab is a multi-month collaborative experience that culminates in a week-long program comprising rehearsals, workshops, forums, community building, and concerts. I will be collaborating with a poet and setting his/her text for a singer and pianist, who will then perform the brand new works in a concert in Vancouver. Like many of the other festivals I’ve taken part in, I will be joined by 11 other composers from across Canada and you will get to hear their work through the workshop as well!
I look forward to seeing some of you in the city! For more details on dates and locations of concerts (to come soon), please check the Upcoming page for more info.
