SAVE THE DATE! Percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie and Land’s End Ensemble

October 1, 2022 7:30 pm
Co-Presented with Mount Royal University and back by popular demand!
In 2017, our sold-out 20th anniversary show with percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie left audiences awestruck and critics raving, calling it “a turning point not only for new music in Calgary, but for all the performing arts.” It was a historic event that left a significant impact on our cultural community. This fall, Ms. Glennie returns for a special concert celebrating Land’s End Ensemble’s 25th anniversary! As the World’s Premier Percussionist, Glennie is thrilled to present these new works by composers she carefully selected for this event—and we are thrilled to be collaborating with her again.

 

The program will feature five critically acclaimed award-winning composers, five brand new works, all generously supported by multiple organizations and donors:
