Regular Season Concerts:




TARANTINO ETUDES
Thursday, September 14, 8pm
The Good Will, 625 Portage Ave. Doors open at 7pm.
Artistic Director: Gordon Fitzell

Delve into neo-noir glitch with “superhuman” flute virtuoso Mark Takeshi McGregor. GroundSwell’s own Gordon Fitzell has designed an audacious, all-Canadian program bursting with theatrical flair. Its centrepiece is the striking and much-celebrated Tarantino Études for bass flute and audio-video glitch—the most recent addition to the famed “Études” cycle by Manitoban-born Nicole Lizée. The program also features new and recent works by composers James O'Callaghan (QC), Gregory Lee Newsome (ON), Hope Lee (ROC) and Michael Oesterle (QC), completing a program of commissions written expressly for McGregor.




EAST//\/\/EST
Tuesday, October 24, 8pm
Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, 515 Portage Ave.
Artistic Director: Michael Matthews

Praised by the NYTimes for their “excellence, poise and precision,” the stellar musicians of Tel-Aviv’s Ensemble Meitar will touch down in Winnipeg during their North American tour. The group is renowned for presenting brand new works, and this concert is no exception, with Canadian premieres by composers Ofer Pelz and Ruben Seroussi, and a world premiere by Meitar’s composer-in-residence, Montrealer Philippe Leroux.
This internationally acclaimed ensemble is one of the great new contemporary ensembles of our time. You won’t want to miss the chance to experience their expressive prowess live in an intimate setting.




GLOBAL SIRENS
Tuesday, November 28 , 8pm
Artistic Director: Diana McIntosh
Winnipeg Art Gallery

Come and witness a brilliant musical mind unravel the mysteries of stunning repertoire written by some of today’s greatest female minds. Pianist Christina Petrowska Quilico performs a concert dedicated to women composers – Meredith Monk, Sofia Gubaidulina, Ann Southam, and Diana McIntosh. With over 150 world premieres to her credit, including 35 piano concertos, Quilico’s passionate artistry and deep sensitivity is a compelling mixture that is sure to captivate. It is no surprise that she was acclaimed by CBC Music as one of Canada’s 25 best Classical Pianists in 2015.




MUSIC 4 EYES & EARS
Sunday, March 15, 2018, 8PM
Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, 515 Portage Ave
Guest Artistic Director: Megumi Masaki

This year’s GroundSwell guest curator is dynamic new music pianist Megumi Masaki. She has concocted a program of virtuosic delights featuring live electronics, video, flute, and cello. Compositions by Keith Hamel, Kotoka Suzuki, Patrick Carrabré, and Randolph Peters push the limits of collaboration in piano performance.
Brandon-based Megumi specializes in exploring how sound, image, text and movement can be integrated in multimedia works. Together with live-electronics and computer music specialist Keith Hamel, her work promises to expand and re-conceptualize the concert experience.




LOUIS RIEL'S DREAM
Tuesday, May 8, 2018, 8pm
Winnipeg Art Gallery
Artistic Director: Jim Hiscott

Let GroundSwell take you on a truly Manitoban journey. Jim Hiscott presents a program of stories about and reflections on Manitoba’s roots, told through the eyes of First Nations, Métis, Inuit and other Manitoban composers. Showcasing remarkable Manitoban musicians from the classical world and from traditional communities, audiences will be treated to Karen Sunabacka's Mama’s Painting: Louis Riel’s Dream, and new pieces by Eliot Britton, Andrew Balfour, Jim Hiscott and others.
