In Wonderland: A Music Drama Through Art Song

I’m happy to post that singer Alondra Vega-Zaldivar and pianist Edgar Suski have decided to include my short piece Grey Room as part of their upcoming Music Drama through Art Song with the theme “In Wonderland”

The piece will be performed at the Toronto Heliconian Club at 35 Hazelton Ave on May 1st and 7pm.

About:

From the organizer, Alonda Vega-Zalvidar: “This is the second year of our one-of-a-kind project called Music Drama Through Art Song.
All around the globe composers submitted pieces for Soprano and small chamber ensemble. After narrowing it down to 14 composers we created an unspoken and unprecedented collaboration of a Musical Drama called “In Wonderland”.”

My 2011 composition Horizons was performed by Alondra Vega-Zaldivar with pianist Edgar Suski on June 14th, 2016 at the Canadian Music Centre as part of the concert: Glimpses: A Music Drama Through Art Song. Based on the poem by Anna Ling Kaye. The piece was originally performed at the Vancouver Art Song lab.
