Génération 2016: ECM+ Canadian tour
Friday, 21 October 2016 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (MDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Crossing Canada from West to East for the 9th time since 2000, the ECM+’s Génération2016 Canadian tour, conducted by Véronique Lacroix and hosted by Gabriel Dharmoo, presents a new edition of this legendary project. This group’s haunting winds, booming percussion and ethereal strings will catapult you from the world of classical music straight to the world of NOW, as they present four newly-commissioned works by some of Canada’s most compelling emerging composers: Brook Taylor, Symon Henry, Adam Scime and Sabrina Schroeder. Also on hand as M.C. will be the one and only Gabriel Dharmoo, who will introduce the composers and works.
