I get to play with James Ehnes, master Canadian violinist, in Stratford tonight (July 18) as part of the Stratford Summer Music Festival! We’ll be playing my piece Magnetic North, which I wrote for James when he came to Yellowknife in 2016. He is one cool guy!
James did me the great honour of premiering it in Yellowknife, and performing it again in Whitehorse and Toronto.
Magnetic North was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award (WCMA) for Classical Composition of the Year 2017 – and we’ll find out the result in September. In the meantime, let’s rock out with new classical music!!
