Experience new sounds when Vancouver’s own Juno-nominated contemporary chamber ensemble Standing Wave plays a concert featuring three world premieres.

Celebrated Canadian composer Brian Current’s Shout, Sysiphus, Flock (2016) will open the program. Jocelyn Morlock‘s whimsical yet poignant Writing in the Margins (2009) will segue seamlessly into Giorgio Magnanensi’s new work liminal spaces, his homage to Morlock. Then the ensemble will explore the intense and intricate musical world of the master composer Dorothy Chang in her new work Of All Things Elusive.

Finally, Nancy Tam’s I forget when we last touched, a three movement work that inhabits the spaces between sound, language, and music, will feature the composer on live electronics.

PLUS! Join us for a free Modulus Closing Night Pizza Party post-show. Enjoy delicious pizza and celebrate music, community, and artists from around the globe.
