Reading Sessions: Self-published choral works by Canadian Composers
July 6, 2019
Self-published choral works by Canadian Composers
2019-2020, various cities
In support of brilliant colleagues, I’m in the process of curating and presenting a variety of reading sessions showcasing self-published choral works by Canadian composers including Marie-Claire Saindon (Québec), Katerina Gimon (BC), Kristopher Fulton (BC), Stephen Smith (BC), Stuart Beatch (Alberta), Ben Sellick (Manitoba), Stephanie Martin (Ontario), Jeff Enns (Ontario), John Armstrong (Ontario), Cy Giacomin (Ontario), Jason Noble (Newfoundland), Carmen Braden (Yellowknife), Margaret King (Alberta), and others (including myself, of course).
These sessions incorporate some singing alongside audio and video examples, and explore a range of ensemble types (i.e. SA, SATB, a cappella, accompanied) and difficulty levels.
The first of these reading sessions is now complete! It took place at Music Conference Alberta in Calgary this past October, 2019. If you weren’t able to attend MCA, I have great news for you: you can listen to some of the works I presented in the session in the playlist below, and you can also click on “View Program” below to check out the full session hand, which includes links to composers’ websites, videos, and further listening.
Stay tuned for the next reading session, which takes place at the Podium conference in Montreal this coming May, 2020!
