THE CANADIAN WOMEN COMPOSERS PROJECT
A Canada-wide recital tour celebrating Canadian women composers lands at The Point Artist-Run Centre, Sunday, January 28
Early in 2017, Toronto based soprano Clarisse Tonigussi observed that Canadian women’s compositions were not being given the full attention they deserved. Ms. Tonigussi began The Canadian Women Composers (CWC) Project recital tour initiative in hopes that this would change.
The Canadian Women Composers Project presents soprano soloist Ms. Tonigussi and pianist Matthew Li, featuring the music of Canadian women composers. In an hour-long recital, vocal repertoire that has been overlooked in the past can be heard, appreciated, and recognized. The works highlighted on the recital will be performed in historical order and will begin with songs written in the early 1900’s. The concert will end with a newly commissioned work based on Anne of Green Gables quotes.
Tickets are $20/$10 students below and at Armchair Books.
Door and cash bar at 4pm, recital at 5pm.
