This year, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s New Music Festival celebrates the music of one of the world’s greatest composers: Steve Reich. From Steve’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Double Sextet to his deeply religious Tehillim, the festival will bring you a musical portrait of a man whose contributions have defined minimalism as we know it.
Also featured at the festival is one of Canada’s leading composers: Christos Hatzis and one of Pacific Rim’s most celebrated composers, Gareth Farr. And one of the world’s greatest percussionists Dame Evelyn Glennie returns to premiere two new concertos written especially for her that will sure to leave you mesmerized.
Also featured are dancers from The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Elmer Iseler Singers, and bass clarinetist Jeff Reilly.
Make sure you don’t miss out on this major musical celebration!
The festival runs from January 28 to February 2.
