***NEW VENUE & TIME***

The first set focuses on The Toronto Harp Society, whose mandate is to cultivate and foster an appreciation of the harp, as well as to encourage new works for harp by Canadian composers. The society is also adamant about supporting arts education, which has resulted in tonight’s featured performers being the winners of their annual competition.

Robert Taylor – J’ai tant rêvé de toi Aria for voice and harp by , performed by Myriam Blardone, winner of the Judy Loman Award from the Toronto Harp Society Scholarship Auditions.
Glenn Buhr – Tanzmusik: IV. Cantilène Elégiaque
Paul Hindemith – Sonata for Harp performed by Clara Wang, winner of the ARCT category of the Toronto Harp Society Scholarship Auditions.
Patrick Arteaga – A Portrait of Tschamiu performed by Angela Schwarzkopf
Henriette Renié – Pièce Symphonique en trois épisodes performed by Angela Schwarzkopf

The second half of the night features Stereoscope Duo, Toronto’s newest saxophone duo – Olivia Shortt (last seen during X Avant as a member of Dialectica) and Jacob Armstrong. This creative and quirky duo aren’t afraid to use electronics, collaborate with dancers and other artists or make new sounds. It’s all in a day’s work.

Robert Lemay (CANADA 1961- ) – Fragments Noirs (2016) for soprano and alto saxophones
Ben Wylie (USA/CANADA 1992) – Dichotic (2015) for two alto saxophones
Anthony T. Marasco (USA 1986- ) – Werewolf (2017) *World Premiere
Finola Merivale (IRELAND 1987- ) – Home (2015) for alto and baritone saxophones and voice
