Land’s End Ensemble Presents: EKPHRASIS

April 6, 2024 4:15 pm
Third Annual Emerging Composers Concert

Note: A pre-concert chat with Jocelyn Anderson (Director of the JR Shaw Institute for Art in Canada) and Allan Gordon Bell (Music Professor, University of Calgary, composer) will take place at 3:15.

This event is made possible through the generous support of Walt and Irene DeBoni.

As part of our annual Student Composers’ Workshop and the University of Calgary’s annual “Alchemy Festival”, we are thrilled to present four new works composed by students of the U of C’s composition program. Throughout the season, we have had the pleasure of collaborating with select student composers during the creation of their works that will now culminate to their premiere performances.

The participants of this season’s Student Composers’ Program are Katie Levinson, Liezel Kruger, Peter Stambene, and Jon Halverson. In addition, in collaboration with Glenbow, we present a special performance of “A Sybil Andrews Portrait” – three works composed by Juno Award-winning composers Jocelyn Morlock, Alexina Louie, and Allan Gordon Bell, inspired by Ms. Andrews’ paintings. Also featured on the program is Vincent Ho’s “Gryphonsong” inspired by the gryphon mythology.
