As part of Canada 150 and International Week celebrations, Western will unveil an original work of art and premiere five six-minute works written by Don Wright Faculty of Music PhD student composers.
DATE: Wednesday, November 15, 2017
TIME: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION: International and Graduate Affairs Building (IGAB) Atrium
The unique work of art by Western Visual Arts student, Paul Chartrand, is the result of a campus-wide competition held in early 2017. The original music compositions were commissioned by the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies:
- Matthew David Becker – Excursions sur un rêve
- Aaron Lee – The Blind Caravan
- Jeff Lupker – Katajjaq Impressions
- Andrew Noseworthy – One Stalk, One Arrow, No Stalk, No Arrow
- Edgar Suski – Polaris-Nocturne
Mezzo-soprano, Anita Krause, will be one of the featured performers.
This special Canada 150 event is a collaboration between the Don Wright Faculty of Music's Music Research and Composition Department, the McIntosh Gallery, Western International, and the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and is generously supported by Western's Canada 150 fund.
All are welcome to join us for the art installation, performances, and a reception.
