Diana McIntosh is an acclaimed Winnipeg-based musician. She has attained a high profile for her one- woman, inter-disciplinary creations, in which she has explored singular ways of working with voiced texts. Her eclectic style ranges from the evocative and provocative to eccentric humour.
In 1978 she, together with Canadian composer Ann Southam, organized Music Inter Alia, western Canada’s first contemporary music series, and was its Artistic Director for 14 years. Last May she performed two solo works at the National Arts Centre. Last month she premiered her latest one-woman theatrical music piece, You, Me and the Trees, in the WSO New Music Festival.
