Camerata Nova: Taken, March 4 - 5

Taken, Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 3 pm at the Ukrainian Labour Temple in north end Winnipeg – This powerful project, curated by Andrew Balfour, encourages listeners to discover the beauty, sorrow and pride of our country's Indigenous culture. Taken features the legacy of traditional music, including the personal songs of elders, as well as three premières: by Jeremy Dutcher, a New Brunswick Maliseet composer/performance artist now living in Toronto; Lindsay Knight, a composer and hip-hop artist extraordinaire from Saskatoon; and Winnipeg's own Andrew Balfour, offering a dramatic work about Frobisher taking Inuit back to England as "curiosities." Conducted by Mel Braun.
