World Premiere: Cantus Borealis

The Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and Prairie Fire Press invite you to attend the World Premiere of Cantus Borealis: Song of the Forest on Wednesday, April 13, at Westminster United Church, 745 Westminster Avenue, from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm

The MCO/Prairie Fire team, led by project coordinator Janine Tschuncky, went deep into the Boreal forest of Manitoba, searching for its collective muse. 

The result is Cantus Borealis: Song of the Forest, a collaboration, with music by composer Sid Robinovitch, words by Katherine Bitney, sound art by Ken Gregory and photography by Mandy Malazdrewich. 
Guest conductor Scott Yoo 
The Winnipeg Soloists Choir, directed by Elroy Friesen

Tickets are available at McNally Robinson Booksellers, the West End Cultural Centre, Organic Planet or online at the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra.

With gratitude to the many communities and individuals whose stories are a part of this collaboration, and to our sponsors: Canon Canada Inc., the Foundation for Choral Music in Manitoba, the Manitoba Arts Council, Manitoba Culture, Heritage and Tourism, the Winnipeg Arts Council New Creations Fund, and The Winnipeg Foundation.
