Our 2017/18 Season is a rich and colourful mix of sounds from a diversity of artists including Musician-In-Residence clarinetist Dominic Desautels, who will present three residency concerts throughout the season. Belgian medieval vocal ensemble Psallentes performs from works featured in ”Centuries of Silence: The Discovery of the Salzinnes Antiphonal”, currently on exhibit at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Also from Belgium, Ô-Celli is a magical ensemble featuring eight cellists. The winner of multiple awards, renowned pianist Jane Coop will perform masterpieces by Beethoven and Rachmaninoff, and Canadian fusion group Ladom Ensemble perform all-original repertoire incorporating inspirations from Argentinian jazz/classical tango, Serbian folk dance, and Persian classical dulcimer.
Other highlights include Postcards From France (Cameron Crozman, cello; Hugo Lee, oboe; Philip Chiu, piano); O Mistress Moon (Jennifer King, piano); a Heemin Choi Recital (Heemin Choi, violin); Faune & Naïades (Duo Palladium: Ariane Brisson, flute; Olivier Hébert-Bouchard, piano); Red Piano (Jeanne Amièle, piano; Simon Larivière, piano); and a production of Mozart & da Ponte’s opera Don Giovanni. The season finishes with a special presentation recital by celebrated soprano Jane Archibald.
