The Fall, East Van Opera

I’m travelling to Victoria, BC later this month for the premiere of my latest work The Colour of Idols: Blue for two voices in East Van Opera’s concert “The Fall.” I’m excited to have my work performed for the first time by Anna Shill, whom I’ve worked with briefly on other projects. Composer Justin Boechler (listen to his last piece with Anna, 6 Songs) has also written a new piece for Anna in this concert. Nathan McDonald will be singing the second voice, a spectacular Baritone who I am looking forward to getting to know.

East Van Opera held a poetry competition for this project, and I had the pleasure of setting Tim Lowan’s poem “Blue” to music.
