We asked some of our favourite performers to reveal the music that makes them tick! This concert showcases these masterful Canadian musicians and composers in performance, in the intimate setting of the Orpheum Annex. The music ranges from an updated treatment of a 17th century lullaby to Leslie Uyeda and Lorna Crozier ’s song cycle Midnight Watch, whose harshly beautiful music and words are given their world première. Three of Vancouver most adventurous pianists, a pair of daring sopranos, and the inventive live processing of michael red, (a frequent NMF participant) will deliver this intimate experience in your choice of performances, late afternoon or early evening.
