The Trio Fibonacci (Julie-Anne Derome, violin; Gabriel Prynn, cello and Jacynthe Riverin, piano) was formed in 1998 and distinguishes itself by its inspired and virtuosic interpretations of contemporary repertoire of which it is one of the only defenders in the Piano Trio medium. Many of Canada’s finest composers have dedicated works to the group. This concert will feature new works by Allan Bell and David Eagle, along with works by Serge Provost, Ana Sokolovic and Chris Harman.

The final concert of the New Works Calgary Season will be a unique exploration of the Canadian Multiculturalism “voice” as we seek to explore art through three very distinct cultural voices. This concert will bring together Parmela Attariwala, a violinist/dancer from an East Indian background from Toronto, Sarah Laakkuluk Williamson, an Inuit throat singer/ story teller/ dancer from Iqaluit, and dancers exploring movement using Japanese Botoh dance techniques. This concert will present each cultural voice independently and then in combination. The final result as these three very distinct cultural voices come together will not only be a highlight of the concert but of the 07-08 season as we seek to explore and present a variety of “voices” some of which at times were suppressed and unheard.

Open Streams: Urban Maze
Urban Maze will explore how concrete walls have taken the place of trees and grass, and how wide open spaces have given way to concrete mazes; mazes in which we often find ourselves trapped. Emerging composers have been asked to create music which makes use of how our concrete world not only affects us as people but how it effects sound and music.
