"If the younger generation doesn't start to reclaim and revitalize our language, we're going to lose it forever. When I came into a better understanding of my language, I started to understand my place in the world a little bit better and started to relate the world around me differently."
-Jeremy Dutcher

Performer, composer, activist, musicologist — these roles are all infused into the art and way of life of Jeremy Dutcher. His music, too, transcends boundaries: unapologetically playful in its incorporation of classical influences, full of reverence for the traditional songs of his home, and teeming with the urgency of modern-day struggles of resistance.

A member of Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, Jeremy joins the WSO for an eclectic evening of his songs fused with operatic and orchestral themes.
