Following up on a pair of immensely successful and satisfying concerts from last season, Musicata is excited to partner once again with Spectrum New Music to present another all-new program of chamber-jazz works for choir and jazz ensemble. The obvious audience enjoyment and enthusiastic feedback that we received after the 2017 collaborative jazz concert confirmed that this new direction was well worth exploring!

Spectrum New Music is a collective of composers with roots in jazz who seek to create jazz- (and pop-, and folk-, and other-) infused works that take us on a deeper journey than the traditional works in those genres typically do on their own. All works in this concert will be world premieres, and all will be by Canadian composers. The theme “Return To Innocence” explores how to recapture the beauty of the world as seen through a child’s eyes: childhood memories, skip-rope stories and playground parables become a sweet refuge from the stressful realities of a difficult present and an uncertain future.

The concert features Musicata with instrumental performers:

–       Piano: Chris Pruden

–       Bass: Jesse Dietschi

–       Percussionist Bryan Allen

And composers:

–       Jay Vasquez; Shannon Graham; Tiffany Hanus; Chelsea McBride; Ben McCarroll; Graham Campbell
