Taken

A National Concert of Truth and Reconciliation

Inuit shamans, Sir Martin Frobisher, Indigenous hip-hop, music of sorrow, loss, pride and love, Camerata Nova presents three powerful choral premières by Indigenous Canadian composers on the theme of “Taken".

Curator Andrew Balfour and Curator/Conductor Mel Braun have done exceptional work with this show. All three compositions contain imaginative elements of solo performance art. New Brunswick Maliseet Jeremy Dutcher, now a Toronto composer/tenor, will join Camerata Nova to sing of the loss of his language. Lindsay Knight, aka Eekwol, the brilliant Muskoday hip-hop artist from Saskatoon, has written a strong, poetic rap text about loss of identity and culture – Camerata Nova will be her live beat! Finally, Andrew Balfour, Cree Artistic Director of the group, has written Quamaniq, a major choral drama starring Iqaluit throat/folk singer Madeleine Allakariallak and Jeremy Dutcher, about 16th-century explorer Martin Frobisher taking Inuit back to England to show as “curiosities.” Other featured artists are Manitoba-born baritone Jason Klippenstein and cellist Leanne Zacharias, and Fred Ford as narrator.

There will be a pre-concert talk with the composers at 6:45 pm on March 4 and 2:15 pm on Sunday, March 5.  Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors and $15 for under-30s.
