Goodbye...

This is my third and final season as composer-in-residence and tenth and final  season as a singer with these fine people (above).

Ten seasons. Six world premieres. Several CBC Broadcasts. Two Healey-Willan Grand Prize awards. One entire a capella album of my work. I could not have dreamt for a deeper, more meaningful residency as an artist.

I've thrown everything (musically speaking) at this great bunch of musicians and they've always embraced each work of mine with zeal and humility. To find this many people in one ensemble who care so much about making new music is a rare and precious thing. I will never forget their kindness and generosity.

Thank you Vancouver Cantata Singers!

This week I will be headed to the 2016 Podium Conference and Festival in Edmonton, Alberta to attend several performances of my works as well attend several workshops and panels on all things choral.

The best part about all of this is getting to meet all my choral peeps face to face!

If you're new to this Festival you can find additional via the Choir Girl blog, an excellent blogger on all things choir. Hope to see you there!
