About this Event

**After numerous considerations for various scenarios, we regret to inform you that we will be postponing our November 8 concert. We are still securing the venue; however the concert is tentatively re-scheduled to 1pm Sunday, December 13 at the King Eddy (438 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0R9). More details including a list of protocols/guidelines will be provided before then. **

A presentation of musical landscapes of composers whose mentors helped to shape the compositional voices we clearly know today. We are exploring and sharing the influence these mentors had and how those relationships helped forge their own unique and strong voices.

Perhaps the most notable to mention is Nadia Boulanger, who was really a mentor of modern composition. There is a long list of great composers that studied with her including Astor Piazzolla, Aaron Copland, Igor Stravinsky and Quincy Jones. Many unique voices indeed!

The musical selections take the listener on a varied journey of the intimate subtleties and colours of Claude Debussy, the harmonically rich expressions of Samuel Barber, and the intense rhythm and heat of Astor Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango while gaining both an understanding and reflection on the power of the positive relationship between mentor and student.
