Gallery - Kingston Symphony Orchestra Special Exhibit
I received an invitation from Evan Mitchell, the Musical Director of the Kingston Symphony Orchestra, to create a small suite of works inspired by a special performance of classic music pieces, all of which incorporate birdsong. The three pieces are: Jennifer Butler “And Birds do Sing”, Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 17, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 ‘Pastoral’.
The concert hall is the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts in Kingston, and the lobby is large, beautiful, open, and enclosed by floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking Lake Ontario. The performance is scheduled for March 5, 2017. Click on the images for the stories behind these pieces. Here is the BLOG about my process in creating them.
